Pachuca's reign is over.
Holders of four trophies entering the match, Pachuca was eliminated from contention from Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday despite a 2-0 win over Club America. Las Aguilas advanced on a 4-3 aggregate and will play Brazilian side Vasco da Gama in the next round.
Christian Gimenez accounted for both goals; he scored one directly off a set piece and forced Guillermo Ochoa to make a save on another, which Damian Alvarez cleaned up and put past "Memo" for another goal. But los Tuzos fell just one goal short of pulling off the result.
It was a historic run for sure and los Tuzos can still make history by winning the Apertura season. Only one other team has pulled off the feat since the Mexican league switched to its current short-season format in 1996.
