The hosts, the only non-Mexican team to make it to this round of the tournament, had no realistic chance of overcoming a 5-0 first leg deficit, but they came out attacking as they looked to salvage some dignity. Gerso gave them an early lead – and some fleeting hope – with his 6th minute goal to make it 1-0 (1-5).
