Amazing........................................Day 3

Is not here yet...and look what has happened in Leon Guanajuato !!!!!!!!!

Leon's Babington first coaching casualty of Verano 2002

(www.TEAMtalk.com) -- Leon coach Carlos Babington resigned on Monday after losing the first two matches of the Mexican Verano by a combined 6-1 score.

A replacement was not immediately announced, but former Honduras coach Ramon Maradiaga is apparently atop the club's short list of candidates. Leon have shown interest in Maradiaga in the past.

Leon dropped their opening match at home against Toluca, 2-0. On Saturday, Monterrey dominated Leon, 4-1. The side’s lack of offense was apparently the death nail in Babington's stay with the club. Offense has traditionally been a problem for Leon, but the club looked lost this season.

Babington lasted about four months with the club. He took over after Round Six of Invierno 2001. Leon, though, finished out of the playoffs last season and were one of the worst sides in the league.

Leon are five points ahead of Celaya in the anti-relegation race. Over the past five seasons, Leon have accumulated 93 points. Celaya have 88 in that span.

In Mexico, relegation is decided on a percentage of points accumulated versus matches played over the previous five seasons. Celaya are at 1.0 while Leon have a 1.0568. Veracruz, who have been in the First Division for three seasons, are third from the bottom with a 1.1296.

C'mon Celaya !!! Let's relegate Leon....!!!!!

Lowlight of Round Three should prove most entertaining

18 January 2002 (www.TEAMtalk.com) - Despite the absence of 18 of Mexico's finest footballers, the Mexican Verano season should show no signs of slowing down. The Mexican national team will play a pair of Gold Cup matches this weekend and several clubs will feel the effects.

Game of the week:

Celaya at Leon. This is a joke, right? Winless Celaya against winless Leon is the best Mexico has to offer? Sort of. You see, Celaya and Leon will play what will essentially be a death match. Both sides are at the top -- or bottom, depending on one's perspective -- of the relegation race. And both sides are quickly making the dubious race a two-team affair. Neither side has shown signs of life, which will make this match interesting. Leon already replaced their coach, which should only bring new life to the Guanajuato club.

Celaya dropped a heartbreaking 3-2 match last week and need only the threat of the Primera A Division to kick back to life. While this is certainly not the best matchup, it will provide the most entertaining football of the weekend. Pick: Leon, 2-1.
Bull....... The Bulls from Celaya take this one !!!!!! :smileani:

Upset of the week:

Tecos at Cruz Azul. Cruz Azul will hit rock bottom this week. After looking atrocious against Chivas, Cruz Azul head home to play a weak side. Only Tecos will not be that weak side, at least not this week. Tecos, usually a lousy road club, will be prepared for Cruz Azul's implosion. Cruz Azul have scored just once in two matches, despite fielding a talented squad. Frustration could set in rather quickly this weekend, and Tecos will take advantage. Pick: Tecos, 1-0.

Stinker of the week:

Santos at La Piedad. La Piedad have a solid offense, while Santos scored three goals in their opener. This match will not necessarily be a terrible one, but it could ressemble a pinball match. Last season, La Piedad fell to Santos, 6-4. Both sides can fill up the nets but do not do a good job of keeping opposing offenses under wraps. The football purist should avoid this match. Pick: Draw, 4-4.

Other matches

Pachuca at Tigres. The two clubs who battled for the Invierno 2001 will do battle again. Though both sides will be missing players, the match could be as emotional as last year's championship series. Both teams have started the season in different directions. Pachuca have won twice, though they trailed at halftime of both matches. Tigres drew in their opener and fell to America last week. Tigres, who did not lose at home last season, may suffer their first home loss in more than a year. Pick: Pachuca, 1-0.

Puebla at Toluca. Fit-to-be-tied Puebla face offensive juggernaut Toluca. Last week, Toluca shredded a very solid Necaxa club. Puebla, which play with none of the offensive flair of Toluca, will be hard-pressed to keep Toluca in check. Toluca's strike force is probably the league's best, now that Carlos Maria Morales is slowly regaining his form. Puebla have little chance to come out of this match alive. Pick: Toluca, 4-1.

America at Veracruz. America are showing signs of life this season, but two solid efforts do not make an entire season. America have scored five goals in two matches and now head to defense-challenged Veracruz. America's Luis Hernandez may finally start for his club after scoring a spectacular goal against Tigres last week. Veracruz's Martin Rodriguez is the best scorer in Mexico right now. He has four goals this season and could add to his tally. Pick: Draw, 2-2.

Morelia at Atlas. If Atlas have yet to reach their potential, Morelia should look out. A new coach and several new players have not held Atlas back, in fact. Atlas have scored six goals in two matches. Newcomer Sigifredo Mercado may be the stabilizing force Atlas have sorely lacked. As long as the offense does not falter, Atlas should be in most matches they play. Morelia, meanwhile, need to work on their defense. But now is not a good time for that. Pick: Atlas, 3-1.

Chivas at Pumas. Through the first two weeks, these two sides may be playing the best football in Mexico. Chivas brought back memories of the powerhouse clubs of old in their domination of Cruz Azul last week while Pumas have played way above their heads. Reality should set in for Pumas this week, though, as Chivas continue to entertain their supporters with impressive football. Pick: Chivas, 2-0.

Monterrey at Necaxa. Necaxa head home to Estadio Azteca to lick their wounds after last week's 3-1 thrashing at Toluca. Monterrey are a good club to face in this situation; Necaxa should have no problems defeating Monterrey. Carlos Castro may find the back of the net for the first time in Mexico against Monterrey's weak defense. Monterrey scored four goals last week, and might make a match out of this, but Necaxa should put the match away early in the second half. Pick: Necaxa, 3-1.

Bye:

Atlante. Atlante would like to hit the reset button on Verano 2002. Atlante dropped their first two matches by identical 3-2 scores. The defense has played horrendous and have dug a hole in both matches that the offense could not overcome. Atlante's bye week comes certainly at an opportune time.

Team rankings:

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

Chivas draws with Pumas in Verano

(www.TEAMtalk.com) --

Round Three of the Mexican Verano concluded on Sunday as Chivas and Pumas played a heated and emotional draw. Meanwhile, Leon and Celaya did not help either of their anti-relegation campaigns, while La Piedad and Necaxa took care of business at home.

Pumas 2 - Chivas 2

Chivas cried foul Sunday as Pumas took advantage late in the match to share the points.

With Chivas ahead 2-1 in the 90th minute, Pumas forward Victor Muller ran onto a through ball inside the area. As Joel Sanchez rushed in, Muller slid and fired a shot well wide of the net.

However, Sanchez was whistled for a call and Pumas were rewarded a penalty kick. Sanchez protested and was sent off, as was Chivas keeper Oswaldo Sanchez.

With no keeper, Chivas forward Gustavo Napoles slipped on the goalie gloves tried to stop the shot. Mariano Trujillo had little sympathy, firing the equalizer into the upper left corner of the net.

Leon 1 - Celaya 1

Neither side took the opportunity to separate themselves from the wrong end of the table. Celaya's Javier Manjarin scored in the 58th minute but Leon answered less than one minute later as Antonio Urteaga slotted in a cross from inside the six-yard box.

Necaxa 3 - Monterrey 1

Necaxa stormed out of the gate and cruised to the victory. Veteran striker Luis Roberto Alves "Zague" scored less than one minute into the match, with Angel Sosa and Luis Perez adding two more. Omar Avilan scored Monterrey's lone goal in the 86th minute.

La Piedad 1 - Santos 0

Andres Perez scored in the 88th minute as La Piedad won their second consecutive match. The victory helps La Piedad pull into a comfortable position as they try and fend off relegation.

The rest

Cruz Azul 3 - Tecos 1: Cruz Azul showed no signs of last week's embarrassing loss to Chivas as the Cementeros showed no mercy against Tecos. Sebastian Abreu, who misfired several times last week, was on the mark. Just five minutes in, defender Juan Reynoso sent a long ball to Abreu, who shook off a defender and fired a shot inside the far post for the first goal of the match. Abreu completed his double in the 59th minute when he headed in a corner kick from Melvin Brown. The two sides traded late goals as Cruz Azul came out with the win.

Tigres 1 - Pachuca 1: Much like last season's finale, Tigres took a lead into the second half but could not hold on. Pachuca, the comeback kids of Verano 2002, had to mount yet another comeback but this time could only take one point from the match. Tigres defender Claudio Suarez opened the scoring when he punched in a loose ball in the 45th minute. Tigres swarmed Pachuca's third in the second half but could not finish any of their numerous chances. Pachuca finally broke through in the 87th minute when Hugo Brizuela beat Tigres keeper Rogelio Rodriguez to a cross inside the area and scored into an empty net. Referee German Arredondo gave out 10 cautions and sent off Tigres' Enilton Menezes and Tigres coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferreti.

Toluca 5 - Puebla 1: Jose Cardozo proved on Saturday that he is still the best scorer in Mexico. The Paraguayan international scored four goals in Toluca's rout of Puebla. Cardozo scored in the 8th, 24th, 70th and 71st minutes as he shredded Puebla's usually-solid defense. Cardozo's elusiveness was too much for Puebla defenders, as he scored all his goals on crosses or through balls which he ran onto.

Atlas 2 - Morelia 0: Atlas may have solved their defensive problems. After surrendering five goals in two matches, Atlas shut out their opponent for the first time this season. Morelia are a more-than-capable offense as well, which makes the shutout even more impressive. Sigifredo Mercado scored in his second straight match and Juan Pablo Rodriguez scored on a penalty kick late in the match as Atlas picked up a deserved victory.
