América vs Pachuca – Jornada 17 Recap and Highlights

Pachuca earned a 2-3 away win against América in their final regular season game, a result that sees both teams finish outside of the playoff places.

The Águilas needed just a draw to ensure their Liguilla berth, but after fighting back from a 0-2 deficit they were unable to prevent Pachuca from scoring a late winner. On the other hand, the margin of victory wasn’t big enough for the Tuzos, who miss out on the playoffs due to goal difference.

Pachuca Wins Liga MX Femenil Cup

Pachuca won the inaugural Liga MX Femenil cup competition with a comprehensive 9-1 thrashing of Tijuana. The scoreline is especially impressive given that the Torneo de Copa featured shorter games, with 35- rather than 45-minute halves.

The Xolas had not conceded a single goal during the three-game group stage, but it took the Tuzas just two minutes to find the breakthrough here. Berenice Muñoz scored almost as soon as the game began by tapping in a low cross, and Pachuca added to their lead just minutes later when Yamile Franco converted a penalty kick to make it 2-0 in the 6th minute.

Pachuca vs Cruz Azul – Jornada 16 Recap and Highlights

With Pachuca’s 17-month home unbeaten streak seconds away from coming to an end, none other than goalkeeper Óscar “Conejo” Pérez scored a dramatic stoppage time goal to give the Tuzos a 2-2 draw with Cruz Azul. The result ends La Máquina’s chances of qualifying for the playoffs, while Pachuca has dropped out of the top eight but is still in the running for a Liguilla spot.

The Tuzos won the CONCACAF Champions League in midweek and were looking to get back on track in league play, where they had gone six games without a win – or a goal. They had the first dangerous chance here, when Jonathan Urretaviscaya combined well with Franco Jara, but “Urreta” saw his shot stopped by Jesús Corona.

CCL: Pachuca vs Tigres UANL – Final Second Leg Recap and Highlights

Pachuca won their fifth CONCACAF Champions League title with a 1-0 (2-1 aggregate) victory against Tigres UANL in the 2016-17 CCL final.

The 1-1 draw in the first leg left everything to play for tonight; Pachuca had the slight advantage of an away goal, meaning that it was Tigres who were obligated to score tonight. Although the Tuzos had the better of the run of play for most of the first half, the universitarios found two very good chances, both through André-Pierre Gignac.

CONCACAF Champions League Final – Second Leg: Where to Watch

The 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League champion will be crowned this Wednesday as Pachuca and Tigres UANL play out the second leg of their final series.

Atlas vs Pachuca – Jornada 15 Recap and Highlights

Atlas extended their home unbeaten streak to five games with a 1-0 victory against Pachuca. The Tuzos are now winless in six and goalless in the same span, although tonight they had the excuse of resting a number of starters with an eye towards Wednesday’s CONCACAF Champions League final.

The first half was a largely even affair, with both teams looking to strengthen their positioning in the playoff race. The visitors had the first clear chance in the 28th minute, when Hirving Lozano found Erick Aguirre in the box, but Brayan Garnica was there to clear the ball with the goalkeeper beaten.

Pachuca vs Chivas de Guadalajara – Jornada 14 Recap and Highlights

Pachuca’s goal drought has now stretched to five games as the Tuzos drew 0-0 with 10-man Chivas de Guadalajara. The result keeps Pachuca unbeaten at home this season but winless in five overall, while Chivas is now winless in two.

The hosts started the game off brightly as they looked to snap their poor run of form in front of their home crowd. But Rodolfo Cota was alert to the danger and the Chivas netminder turned into the star of the game for the visitors as he made a number of impressive saves to keep the game goalless.
