Pachuca and the Super Chaco

Pachuca managed a 2-2 draw from Santos' Estadio Corona today. That leaves Pachuca at 7 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. The only troubling factor is Pachuca's lack of performance on the road. Only 2 wins on the road this season and the last one in early February.

That sets Pachuca up for next week: Perhaps an early preview of this year's final, pitting CF Pachuca vs. CD Toluca. Toluca is currently in first, undefeated, and leading the league with 26 points. Pachuca trails closely behind with 24 points and the top offense in the league.

Pachuca's biggest weapon? Christian "El Chaco" Gimenez. Gimenez has been a stand-out performer for a long time, enjoying good showings at Veracruz before his brief spell at Club America, and again becoming a star with Pachuca. This season, however, he's the top scorer in the league, having netted 5 goals in the past two games (yes, todays were penalty kicks, but still). Gimenez is dreaming of an Argentine call-up and with Riquelme's recent rocky exit... you never know...

For now, enjoy Chaco's goals so far this season...

#1 (Week 4 vs. Club America)

#2 (Week 6 vs. Puebla)

#3-4 (Week 9 vs. Tecos)

#5-7 (Week 11 vs. Necaxa)

#8-9(Week 12 vs. Santos)
