WOODY BAUM - Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Francisco Torres and Pachuca have the chance to make it to the Concacaf Champions League finals in their quest to return to the Club World Club Wednesday night versus Toluca.
The series is tied after Toluca was able to equalize in the 78th minute last week in the Estadio Nemesio Diez, despite Pachuca dominating for long spurts of the game.
Pachuca will have a definite advantage with their away goal, and will only need a victory tonight to advance to the finals against Cruz Azul.
Francisco Torres started last weekend and is expected to start again tonight after having cemented his role in the past several weeks.
Pachuca will have to play without star Paul Aguilar, who was recently called up to practice with the Mexican National Team.
However, Toluca will be without two starters, Miguel Almazán and Diego Novaretti, who were both sent off last week in Toluca.
