Pachuca boost Libertadores hopes
Uruguayan Rodrigo Lopez scored in the sixth minute of injury time as Pachuca won 2-1 at Monterrey in a qualifying match for next year's South American Libertadores Cup.
Pachuca defender Francisco de Anda put the visitors ahead in the second half of Wednesday night's match while Argentine striker Guillermo Franco hit Monterrey's reply but also missed two penalties.
The two sides meet in Pachuca again next week and the aggregate winners will go into the 2005 Libertadores Cup, in which Mexican teams take part by invitation.
Two championships - the Clausura and Apertura - are played in the Mexican season and Monterrey and Pachuca were the winners of the 2003 tournaments.
They could not play in this year's Libertadores because Mexico is affiliated to CONCACAF, the North and Central America and Caribbean Confederation, and the pair were instead obliged to play in the less glamorous CONCACAF Champions Cup.
Mexico's other two representatives in next year's Libertadores will be decided in an eight-team tournament in January featuring the best eight teams from the 2004 season - but not the two champions who will instead have to play for a single place in the 2006 tournament.
