Claudio Suárez scores o.g. as Tigers crash

MEXICO CITY, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Claudio Suarez, Mexico's most capped international, put through his own goal as UNL were beaten 4-2 at Chiapas on the opening weekend of the Mexican Clausura championship.

Titleholders Pachuca, who beat UNL in the final of the Apertura championship in December, made a stuttering start to the defence of their crown as they were held 2-2 at home by unfancied Queretaro.

The Tigers, who had Argentine coach Nery Pumpido and three players suspended for their part in a stormy second leg to last year's final, were quickly in trouble as Paraguayan Salvador Cabanas put Chiapas ahead in the 14th minute.

Defender Suarez, who has won 171 caps for Mexico, put through his own goal in the 18th minute and Brazilian Sebastian Pereira made it 3-0 in the 33rd minute.

The Tigers made it 3-2 when Argentine Walter Gaitan scored twice in three minutes after the break only for Pereyra to add the home side's fourth in the 66th minute.

Queretaro, who managed only seven points in 19 games to finish bottom of the Apertura championship, twice led Pachuca.

The White Roosters went ahead through Argentine Carlos Casartelli after nine minutes and regained the lead when Carlos Ochoa converted a 75th minute penalty.

Sergio Santana replied for Pachuca on the stroke of halftime and Francisco de Anda equalised again with only ten minutes left.

Bolivian striker Joaquin Botero scored a 72nd minute equaliser as UNAM, coached by former Real Madrid and Mexico striker Hugo Sanchez, settled for a 1-1 draw away to America in the Mexico City derby.

America, looking to improve on a dismal effort in the Apertura where they failed to make the knockout stages, had gone ahead through Alvaro Ortiz early in the second half.

Monterrey, where Uruguayan Hugo de Leon made his debut as coach after replacing Argentina's Daniel Passarella, were held to a goalless draw at home by Cruz Azul while Guadalajara, the country's most popular club, won 1-0 at Santos Laguna.

Week 1 Wrap

01/19/2004.

Jaguares 4 – 2 Tigres

The Jaguares of Chiapas started the season at home with a fantastic win over Tigres UNAL. Chiapas which was heavily reinforced in the preseason played to their fans delight as they ran the tally against last season's runner up. Jaguares showed no mercy and in the 15th minute took the lead off a Salvador Cabanas goal. Three minutes later veteran defender Claudio Suarez scored an own-goal to give the home team a two goal advantage. Before the end of the first-half Jaguares would score a third goal on a set play with a goal by Brazilian Sebastian "Didi" Pereyra. In the second half Tigres would mount a serious challenge in the form of Walter Gaitan. The Argentine midfielder put Tigres within a goal of tying the match after bagging a brace in the span of three minutes. It looked as if Jaguares would let the win slip from their grasp until Irving Rubirosa went past his marker and crossed the ball to Didi who would score his second goal of the game to sentence the match.

Monterrey 0 – 0 Cruz Azul

Club Monterrey opened the season with a dull 0-0 draw at home against Cruz Azul.
The visiting team played without Argentine striking tandem Cesar Delgado and Luciano Figueroa who are playing with their U-23 squad for a chance to go to the Olympics in Greece later this year. The Rayados of Monterrey are now coached by Uruguayan Hugo Eduardo de Leon who replaced Daniel Alberto Passarella in the winter break. The change in coach was notable as the Rayados showed a more solid defensive scheme but still struggled to finish off their chances. Cruz Azul without their main striker "Chelito" Delgado and Monterrey still adapting to de Leon's tactics made sense of a scoreless draw.


Morelia 1-1 Irapuato

The Monarcas of Morelia salvaged a 1-1 draw at home against Club Irapuato. The new look Irapuato coached by Alexander Guimaraes surprised Morelia in the 28th minute as Diego Garay on an individual play opened the scoring sheet. Monarcas would suffer thought the game as Irapuato hanged on to their one goal lead. In the 85th minute Colombian midfielder Mauricio "Mao" Molina in a moment of sheer brilliance waltzed by his marker and blasted a rocket past Irapuato's keeper to tie the match. Mao spent most last season in the bench and was close to being traded. Molina however has been proving why he is one of Colombia's top prospects and will look to lead Morelia back to the limelight this season.


San Luis 0 – 2 Necaxa

Another long and arduous season seems in store for Real San Luis. Regarded as a low bottom club San Luis which gets relegated every other season paid the price of not reinforcing their squad in the off season. Necaxa which also didn't present any major signings proved to be a more solid squad than San Luis. Maintaining Arias lackluster ultra defensive tactics Necaxa managed to capitalize twice to take the win. Goals from Jorge Orozco in the 43rd minute and Milton "Tyson" Nunez in the final minutes of game play set Necaxa to a good start of the season.


Atlas 1-1 Puebla

Puebla took advantage of a weary Atlas still hangover from their surprise runner up finish in the Inter-Liga tourney to take a point from Estadio Jalisco. The Rojinegros of Atlas didn't show any of the sparks which gave hope to their fans during the Inter-Liga match ups. No this was another Atlas one that was victimized by Puebla's tactics. With the midfield drowned in players both squads struggled to take control of the match and played to scoreless first half. Juan Arango finally found the back of the net in the 55th minute to put Puebla in the lead. It was then that Atlas stepped it up a notch and found in second half substitute Robert Pinto the back of the net. The Brazilian striker tied the game in the 68th minute.


America 1-1 Pumas

The Mexico City derby head lighted Match Day One as the ongoing rivalry between Pumas UNAM and Club America looked to settle old scores. The match played at the Colossus of Saint Ursula better known as the Estadio Azteca finished with a one goal draw. Both squads looked to take the early lead but to no avail as the first half would end scoreless. Leo Beenhakker's squad dominated most of the match up and finally broke though in the in the 52nd minute. Alvaro Ortiz with a potent free kick had las Aguilas on top. However Hugo Sanchez Pumas with their never say die attitude fought back to draw the match in the 73rd minute.


Pachuca 2-2 Queretaro

The Torneo Apertura Champions the Tuzos of Pachuca got off to a rough start as they were unable to handle lowly Queretaro. The Gallos Blancos of Queretaro took the early lead with a goal from Carlos Casartelli. The Argentine striker capitalized on a mistake by goalkeeper Miguel Calero to stun the defending Champions. Octavio Valdez however would tie the game for the home team before the whistle signaled the end of the first half. Pachuca's woes continued well in the second half where they were really put to the test. In the 75th minute Carlos Ochoa would have Queretaro once again on top but true to their style Pachuca would fight back to salvage the draw. A scrappy goal by Gabriel de Anda was enough to save face.


Atlante 0-1 Toluca


The Potros of Atlante carried their Inter-Liga losing streak into match day one of the Clausura season losing at home against Toluca. The Diablos Rojos as Toluca is known played without team captain Jose Saturnino Cardozo who is sidelined with bruised ribs. Atlantes loss would be product of Jose Abundis who the Potros released in the off season. Abundis managed to take the ball into the penalty area and earn a penalty kick after being taken down by defender Paulo Serafin. In the absence of Cardozo it was Miguel Zepeda who would take the penalty kick shot and score the loan goal.


Tecos 3-2 Veracruz

Tecos UAG mounted a spectacular second half comeback to defeat Veracruz at Estadio Tres de Marzo. Tecos which played a lousy first half quickly found themselves down by two goals. Roles would be switched in the second half as Tecos would turn into the aggressor. The second half goal scoring performance by Tecos started in the 52nd minute with a goal from Maximo Francisco Lucas. Then Brazilian Eliomar Marcon would tie the match in the 60th minute. With the score now leveled Tecos dominated the game. Their attack would prove to be too much for the Tiburones Rojos which gave up a third goal in the 67th minute as Eduardo Lillingston pushed the ball past Veracruz keeper for the win.


Santos 0-1 Chivas

Chivas of Guadalajara earned a hard fought away win against Santos Laguna at the always difficult "Comarca Lagunera" Estadio Corona. Santos now coached by Chivas ex Coach Eduardo "Yayo" de la Torre had previously defeated Chivas in the Inter-Liga and looked to have their number. Guadalajara however proved to have improved its backline as Dutch Coach Hans Westerhoff remained confident in his defensive changes which had many in the squad worried before the start of the season. A combination play between Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista and Ramon Ramirez would bring forth the winning goal. A quick give and go between the two resulted in a shot being deflected by the keeper into Omar Bravos patch who kicked it to the back of the net to claim Guadalajara's first win of the season.
