PREVIEW: PACHUCA - CRUZ AZUL
WOODY BAUM - Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Jose Francisco Torres and Pachuca look to win the CONCACAF Champions League and qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup.

After losing the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final to Cruz Azul last week 2-1, Pachuca will be obligated to win at home on Wednesday.

Pachuca are currently down by one goal, but were able to obtain a highly prized away goal.

Apart from playing for the Championship, there will be extra motivation for Cruz Azul, as it was Pachuca who were able to advance to the liguilla over them thanks to a one goal differential as the teams were tied on overall points.

Torres looks to have recovered from a painful tackle he received last week in the first leg and should get the start.

Cruz Azul will be without Julio Cesar Dominguez who is suspended because of his ejection in the previous game for his tackle on Torres.

The visitors will also be with Gerardo Torrado who is training with the Mexican national team.

Pachuca will be without Paul Aguilar who is also training with the national team.
