here is what each team need in order to classify to the playoffs


Atlante- They still have a chance to enter the playoffs directly or by reclasification. In order for this to happen they need to win Veracruz and hope that Santos ties or loses Vs Toluca. With that they would be second in their group and waiting to see the rest of the results to see if they enter directly or through Reclasification. If they tie or Lose vs Veracruz they are out.


Tigres- The Felines need to beat America and have Tecos lose in order to qualify with a better goal diferential. If Tecos wins, then the only hope for Tigres is the reclasification, in which case they need a tie or loss by Santos and of course a win Vs America. Like Atlante, a tie or a loss will end their campaign.


Tecos- The Tecos requier but one point to qualify Mathamatically. Which means that a tie Vs Jaguares will put them in. Even with a loss they are in, given that Tigres does not win. A loss combined with a Tigres victory will have the Tecos looking for Reclasification, and that is only if Santos losses.

Atlas- Needs a lot of games to go their way in order to go to reclasification. Atlas need to win Vs San Luis and hope that both Tigres and Santos lose, they also have to hope that Necaxa and Monterey Tie. only by this way will Atlas reclassify.

Santos- The warriors require a win Vs Toluca to gain reclasification. A tie or a loss combined with a Atlante victory ends the season for Tena's boys. To classify directly Santos needs to win their game and hope that Tigres lose or tie. In case both Tigres and Santos win, Tigres hold the edge by 2 goals in diferential.

Monterey- In order to gain reclasification Monterey need to win Necaxa and hope that Tigres, Santos, Atlante, and Atlas all lose... or if Atlas wins, by 1 goal only and Montery to win by an ample margin.

Necaxa- In order to gain reclasification they need to win Monterey and hope that Tigres and Santos Lose.

Excellent analysis El Burrito, I think that Tecos and Tigres will be the last two qualifiers. Though I wish necaxa will be one of them.

Toluca slip, despite Cardozo form

MEXICO CITY, Dec 5 (Reuters) -

Record-breaking striker Jose Cardozo was on target again for Toluca in the Mexican championship on Wednesday, but Guadalajara struck twice in the last six minutes of their quarter-final first leg to win 2-1.
Paraguayan international Cardozo, who hit a record-breaking 29 goals in 19 matches during the qualifying stage of the competition, scored for the 12th consecutive game to give Toluca a 56th minute lead.

But Guadalajara, who still field only Mexican players in a championship awash with foreigners, hit back through Jair Garcia in the 84th minute and Emilio Mora three minutes later to sneak a surprise win before a 60,000 crowd at the Jalisco stadium.

UNAM coach Hugo Sanchez, whose team last week qualified for their first South American Libertadores Cup, was satisfied with his team after they held out for a 0-0 draw at Cruz Azul in another tie.

'We came to win but a draw was good for us,' said the former Real Madrid and Mexico striker. 'It was a disciplined job, we carried out everything we rehearsed during the week.'

Morelia took command in the day's other match, winning 3-1 away to UAG thanks to second-half goals from Uruguayan Carlos Morales and Antonio Gonzalez.

Argentine Jorge Almiron put the visitors ahead in the seventh minute and Brazilian Osmar Donizete equalised for the Tecos, led by former Peru coach Julio Cesar Uribe, in the 34th.

In between, Chilean striker Reinaldo Navia missed a penalty for the home side. (WILL NOW be Sold to AMerica !!!!)

Defending champions America are away to Santos Laguna on Thursday.

It looks like Morelia is almost thru, but the other 3 are still up for grabs.

I watched the Puamas UNAM vs Cruz Azul and I believe it might have been the ugliest game I've seen all year. The teams couldn't string more than two passes and tons of fouls.

You are probably right his performance during the last Libertadores Cup was superb. And they need to replace Zamorano since he'll be playing for the "cacique" Colo Colo starting in January.

So it's set Morelia, Toluca, Pumas and Santos are the semifinalists. Who would have thought that none of the three most popular teams in Mexico (Guadalajara, America and Cruz Azul) would make it to the semis.

Toluca vs Santos
Toluca just hired a new coach after Graniolati quited after the quarterfinals. I think this team probably doesn't need a coach and anyone coming in woulb be more pf a detriment than help. Santos surprised everyone by eliminating America, but I think their defense is simply too suspect to contain Cardozo and Sanchez. So despite of Borguetti's and Ruiz's heroics I think Toluca will prevail.

Pumas vs Morelia
Pumas despite having a team of relative unknown young players, they have played for the most part together since their development teams years. They are probably the most motivated and tenacious team who play very well together. Morelia on the other hand is a team that started slowly this year. But I think that they have the firepower and defensive game to give Pumas trouble. Alex fernandez is pretty much unstopabble and after Cardozo and Abreu IMO is the best striker in the Mexican league. Morelia wins in a close one.

Toluca flexed it's offensive muscle and beat Santos 5-3 on the road, crushing just about any hope Santos had of advancing. As usual Cardozo and Sanchez were the main culprits, While Ruiz was the best man for the "laguneros"

Morelia clubbered Pumas 4-0, in the first leg of the semis, pretty much sealing their access to the final. They had a very impressing performance, in the first half I think they shot 5 or 6 shots on goal and scored 3 times and none of the goals were due to keeper's mistakes or anything that the defense did.

The Diablo's Rojos of Toluca defeat Santos Laguna to reach the Mexican Apertura Liguilla final.

12/15/2002.

Lead by Paraguayan International Jose Saturnino Cardozo, Toluca became the first finalist for the Apertura Liguilla Championship. Toluca which had defeated Santos Laguna in the first leg of the semi-final match (5-3) had no problems overcoming Santos 2-1 at their home, Estadio Nemesio Díez or A.K.A. La Bombonera for a 7-4 aggregate score. Toluca's rival for the Championship will be between UNAM Pumas and Monarcas Morelia which have yet to play their second leg semi-final match.

Morelia is the other finalist ....
In a 1x2 losing effort to Pumas, they still manage to advance to the Finals !!!

Good luck to both Finalists ..... I'd like to see Morelia WIN it .. Im no fan of either Team, but I'd like to see the bunch from Michoacan take it all this time around !!!

It's hard to go against the firepower of Toluca but I am going to pick Morelia to win this one. I think they are balnced enough to compete with Toluca. As long as it doesn't become a game of who score the most, then Morelia has a good shot.
