Plenty of first-rate matches in Verano Round Two

www.internetsoccer.com

With the matchups in Round Two of the Mexican Verano 2002, many Mexicans will be glued to their television sets for the entire weekend.

There are three contests worthy of a finals series and several other matches worth watching. Toss out the pathetic La Piedad-Tecos and Pumas-Celaya matches, and no Mexican supporter could ask for anything more.

Game of the week:

Necaxa at Toluca. The Mexican football gods have offered its supporters a tasty morsel this weekend. Two of the top clubs in Mexico square off in Estadio Nemesio Diez. Both sides have been amongst the league's top clubs for nearly a decade (outside of last Verano's aberrations). Necaxa and Toluca are both loaded with top talent and experience. Last week, the clubs combined for five goals and allowed none. Toluca will beat Necaxa in a tough and entertaining match in what could be a finals preview. Pick: Toluca, 2-1.

Upset of the week:

Leon at Monterrey. Monterrey losing to most clubs would not be considered much of an upset, but dropping a home-opener to Leon is ground for exile. Monterrey's offense was non-existent against lowly Pumas a week ago. Leon, who also had 90 minutes of scoreless football in their opener, have their own demons to slay. This weekend, at least and probably only one goal will fall, and the visitors from the south will celebrate it. Pick: Leon, 1-0.

Stinker of the week:

La Piedad at Tecos. Nobody missed Tecos last week when they took their bye and nobody would miss this match if it never happened. Unfortunately, the schedule calls for the each club to play every other club during the regular season, so here we are. Tecos are at home and as such should pull out a not-so-entertaining victory. Pick: Tecos, 1-0.

Other matches

Atlas at Atlante

An intriguing match featuring two playoff contenders will be played at Estadio Azul. Atlas played the best match of last weekend's openers, scoring late to pull out a 3-3 draw at home. Now, they face an Atlante side ready to atone for their loss to Veracruz. Atlante's defense showed holes which Atlas offensive guru Enrique Meza could exploit. Atlante, though, lost only four matches last season, and two losses in two matches this year does not appear likely. Pick: Draw, 2-2.

Cruz Azul at Chivas

On most other weeks, this would be the best matchup in the league. Chivas' tradition and support is rivaled by only two other Mexican sides, and Cruz Azul are one of them. Estadio Jalisco should be filled to capacity for this match. Chivas might seem overmatched against Cruz Azul's talent-laden side, but Chivas seem to get up for these matches -- at least early in the season. Look for Chivas to pack in their defense and score on a couple of breakaways. Pick: Chivas, 2-1.

Veracruz at Morelia

Morelia were one bad call away from stealing a victory from Tigres at Estadio Universitario. But a referee assistant's atrocious offside call took away a legitimate Morelia goal and Tigres came back to draw, 1-1. Now, Morelia are hoping to make one bad call a moot point. Morelia's offense comes alive at Estadio Morelos, and that should be the case against one of the league's worst defenses. Pick: Morelia, 3-1.

Pachuca at Puebla

The champions are hoping to make this week's match less riveting than last week's. Pachuca overcame a 2-0 halftime deficit to beat America, 3-2. Comebacks like that, though, only come along several times a season. Now, Pachuca face a gritty, defensive-minded Puebla club who make it difficult for their opponents to score. Puebla seem content to play for a draw every week, and this week should be no different. Pick: Draw, 1-1.

Pumas at Celaya

The last time these clubs met, Celaya surrendered five unanswered goals in the last half hour as Pumas won, 5-0. This time will be different. Celaya seem semi-stable while Pumas are coming off a victory. Now, a win would seem beneficial but Pumas did not win two consecutive matches all of last season. Celaya will try to keep that stat alive for another season. Pick: Celaya, 2-1.

Tigres at America

Estadio Azteca is an imposing place to play, but not when it comes to America. Mexican sides welcome the opportunity to visit Latin America's most revered football shrine. The hosts, America, are more than happy to kick the ball around for 90 minutes with no particular rhyme or reason. Mix in a Tigres side content with scoreless draws and that is exactly what you get. Pick: Draw, 0-0.

Bye: Santos. Santos need a rest after a tough 3-3 draw against Atlas last week. The club also need to figure out how to pass the ball to each other without having it stolen by the other side. Last week, Atlas scored after keeper Adrian Martinez botched a pass from defender Luis Romero.

Team rankings: 1. Pachuca; 2. Toluca; 3. Cruz Azul; 4. Necaxa; 5. Tigres; 6. Santos; 7. Chivas; 8. Atlas; 9. Atlante; 10. Morelia; 11. Puebla; 12. Tecos; 13. Veracruz; 14. Tecos; 15. Monterrey; 16. America; 17. Pumas; 18. La Piedad; 19. Celaya

More on Saturday matches

www.internetsoccer.com

Three matches were all the Mexican First Division had to offer, but the trio turned out to be rather entertaining affairs, none of which ended in draws. Toluca and Monterrey entertained their supporters with wide-open football while La Piedad sent Tecos supporters home disappointed.

Toluca 3, Necaxa 1.

Toluca won the battle of the early season favorites with a stellar effort at Estadio Nemesio Diez. Toluca fell behind early, though, thanks to former Toluca star Victor Ruiz. The midfielder, who had an unceremonious end to his Toluca career several weeks ago, scored from 18 yards out midway through the first half. Toluca, however, responded. Vicente Sanchez drew a penalty kick, which Carlos Maria Morales converted late in the first half. Omar Blanco scored the game-winner on an uncontested shot from just inside the six-yard box. Morales completed his double in the 69th minute when he beat a pair of Necaxa defenders and broke in alone on Nicolas Navarro.

Goals: 1. Necaxa, Ruiz 1 (24); 2. Toluca, Morales 1 (45-pk); 3. Toluca, Blanco 1 (68); 4. Toluca, Morales 2 (69).

Monterrey 4, Leon 1


Julio Cesar Yegros made a quick impact with Monterrey. The former Pumas star -- acquired just days before the start of the season -- had a double and set up another goal as Monterrey dominated. Newcomer Danilo Sacramento also had a double. Leon's Raul Gutierrez was sent off in the 52nd minute, which added to Leon's collapse. Monterrey scored three goals with the 11-on-10 advantage.

Goals: 1. Leon, Valadez 1 (8); 2. Monterrey, Yegros 1 (13); 3. Monterrey, Sacramento 1 (53); 4. Monterrey, Sacramento 2 (67); 5. Monterrey, Yegros 2 (74).

La Piedad 2, Tecos 0

Claudinho was not to be denied on Saturday. The Brazilian bagged a pair of late goals to help La Piedad steal their match against a stunned Tecos side. The match had been fairly wide-open but neither side could finish their scoring opportunities. Claudinho, however, finally broke through for La Piedad. In the 87th minute, Claudinho trapped a cross with his chest and fired a low, left-footed shot past Tecos keeper Mario Rodriguez. Then, in the 90th minute, he converted a penalty kick to put the game away.

Goals: 1. La Piedad, Claudinho 1 (87); 2. La Piedad, Claudinho 2 (90-pk).

Sundays Recap/Day 2

Chivas dominate Cruz Azul, America beat Tigres

(www.TEAMtalk.com)

-- Round Two of the Mexican Verano season saw plenty of goals. Chivas blasted Cruz Azul while America dropped three goals on Tigres' vaunted defense.

Chivas 3 - Cruz Azul 0: Chivas left little doubt who is the team to beat in Group One. Emilio Mora scored in his first match while Ramon Morales and Alberto Medina bagged late insurance goals as Chivas dominated in Estadio Jalisco. Cruz Azul keeper Oscar Perez was left alone by his defenders on several occasions. On the opening goal, Mora hammered in a cross that just cleared Cruz Azul defender Sergio Almaguer's head. Midway through the second half, Cruz Azul's Melvin Brown could not keep up with Morales on Chivas' second goal, as the national team defender slipped and fell in a failed attempt to keep up with Morales. Perez could do little to stop Morales. Cruz Azul forwards Miguel Zepeda and Sebastian Abreu faltered on several scoring chances.

Goals: 1. Chivas, Mora 1 (19); 2. Chivas, Morales 1 (65); 3. Chivas, Medina 1 (85).

America, 3 - Tigres 1: Luis Hernandez and Ivan Zamorano scored second-half goals as America's big guns came through. America did little offensively, though, until the second half. America's first goal came on a Javier Saavedra own goal in the 37th minute. America's offense then came to life when Zamorano beat Tigres keeper Oscar Dautt. Hernandez added a goal less than 10 minutes later and America cruised to the win.

Goals: 1. America, Tigres own goal (37); 2. America, Zamorano 1 (62); 3. America, Hernandez 1 (69); 4. Tigres, Dominguez 1 (70).

Pachuca 2 - Puebla 1: For the second consecutive match, Pachuca trailed at halftime. And for the second consecutive match, Pachuca roared back for a convicing victory. Pachuca received second-half goals from Walter Silvani and Juan Arango to remain undefeated. Puebla's Pablo Caballero scored just three minutes in and the hosts controlled much of the rest of the action in the first half. However, much like last week's 3-2 comeback victory over America, Pachuca responded early in the second half. Silvani scored his first goal of the season just five minutes into the second half and Arango added the game-winner a quarter hour later.

Goals: 1. Puebla, Caballero 1 (3); 2. Pachuca, Silvani 1 (50); 3. Pachuca, Arango 2 (75).

Atlas 3 - Atlante 2: Atlas scored three goals for the second consecutive match but finished with a victory this time around. Atlas, who drew with Santos 3-3 last week, got goals from three different sources. Jose Luis Calderon, who led the side with nine goals last season, scored his first goal of the season on a left-footed shot that got past Atlante's Damian Grosso. Sigifredo Mercado scored in his debut with Atlas and Juan Pablo Rodriguez bagged the game-winner with 10 minutes remaining.

Goals: 1. Atlante, Pineda 3 (9); 2. Atlas, Calderon 1 (37); 3. Atlas, Mercado 1 (55); 4. Atlas, Rodriguez 1 (79); 5. Atlante, Paredes 1 (90).

Morelia 2 - Veracruz 2: Morelia squandered a pair of leads and managed just a draw against Veracruz. Jose Antonio Noriega and Alex Fernandes scored Morelia's goals, but their unreliable defense surrendered a late goal in the first half and a goal with less than a quarter hour remaining. Martin Rodriguez scored his fourth goal of the season in first-half stoppage time.

Goals: 1. Morelia, Noriega 1 (14); 2. Veracruz, Rodriguez 4 (45); 3. Morelia, Fernandes 2 (54); 4. Veracruz, Cañete 1 (77).

Pumas 4 - Celaya 3: Diego Latorre hit a double for Celaya but Victor Muller's goal in stoppage time gave Pumas their second victory in as many weeks. Pumas jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead behind goals from Mariano Trujillo and Rafael Marquez Lugo. Celaya, though, answered and had the match even at intermission. Emerson Dos Santos put Pumas ahead, 3-2, in the 66th minute but Latorre's second goal of the match pulled Celaya even. With the match headed for a draw, Pumas' Muller beat Celaya keeper Omar Ortiz for the game-winning goal.

Goals. 1. Pumas, Trujillo 1 (14-pk); 2. Pumas, Marquez Lugo 1 (18); 3. Celaya, Latorre 1 (34); 4. Celaya, Ramirez 1 (38); 5. Pumas, Dos Santos 1 (66); 6. Celaya, Latorre 2 (79-pk); 7. Pumas, Muller 1 (90).
