WOODY BAUM - Friday, May 14, 2010
Jose Francisco Torres and Pachuca look to win on the road in order to qualify for the Mexican liguilla finals.

Pachuca will visit Toluca for the second leg of their semifinal bout in the Estadio Nemesio Diez this Sunday.

The Tuzos are coming off a come from behind tie against Toluca, after equalizing in the 86th minute in midweek.

Because Pachuca are the lower seeded team, a tie against Toluca would leave them out of the finals. Pachuca will need to win in Toluca to advance.

Toluca is traditionally one of the most dangerous teams in Mexico at home, and while there is a possibility that Toluca will look to defend and maintain their aggregate lead, it is unlikely, as they have traditionally played attacking soccer in front of their fans.

Pachuca will be on the offensive from the beginning as they look for the necessary victory.

Torres will be with the squad and most likely start, after starting in the last game.

However, it is unknown for how long Torres will be Pachuca as he was recently called up to the U.S. national team training camp.

Miguel Calero and Gerardo Rodriguez will be out injured for Pachuca.

In addition, Paul Aguilar is unavailable as he is training with the Mexican national team. Miguel Almazán will be out injured for Toluca.
