Pachuca Qualifies for Group Stage in a BIG Way


Pachuca has advanced to the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League with a 7 – 1 road win at Estadio Las Flores in Jalapa, Guatemala. Pachuca wins on a 10-1 aggregate.  I caught some of the game and Jalapa showed a ton of effort and energy for a team that was completely outmatch. Pachuca, however, showed us again, why they have been the most successful team in Mexico recently.

The win places Pachuca in Group A which includes the Houston Dynamo. The two teams have matched up three times in the past three years for a total of 4 games. Only D.C. United has faced a Mexican team (Chivas) more times (plus 9 extra years).
Here’s the history:

03/15/07 – CONCACAF Champions Cup – Dynamo Win First Leg

04/05/07 – CONCACAF Champions Cup – Pachuca wins in extra time.

08/14/07 -Superliga- Dynamo go down in PKs

07/29/08 – Superliga – Dynamo win outright for the first time

Mark you calendars.
09/16 – Wednesday at Estadio Hidalgo,
09/30 – Wednesday at home
