World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613963 The three aces! The+three+aces%21 World

Andrés Guardado and his Valencia teammates face their most difficult challenge of the season when they visit the Parc des Princes on Wednesday. PSG claimed a 2-1 victory at the Mestalla a fortnight ago to assume control of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash between the two sides. Guardado – a likely starter at left back – and his comrades must find a way to reverse the deficit in order to keep their European dreams alive.

 

Guardado's upcoming trip to Paris garnered some attention, but there were other exploits to monitor in the Mexicans Abroad world this weekend. Read on to learn more about Carlos Vela's latest contribution at Real Sociedad and Giovani dos Santos' late intervention for Mallorca.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613965 Guillermo Ochoa, GK, AC Ajaccio Guillermo+Ochoa%2C+GK%2C+AC+Ajaccio World

The Corsican derby between Ajaccio and Bastia descended into a brawl in second half stoppage time and ended with five total dismissals. Dennis Oliech started the fracas with an ill-advised challenge on Bastia goalkeeper Mickaël Landreau. The challenge incited a scrum that saw Ajaccio's Benjamin Andre and Bastia's Jérôme Rothen and Florian Thauvin ejected by referee Clement Turpin. The late hostilities – nor Mathieu Chalmé's second bookable offense after 80 minutes – did not change the outcome of the affair. Toifilou Maoulida decided the match with his strike past Ochoa (six saves) a minute into the second half.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613966 Hector Moreno, D, Espanyol Hector+Moreno%2C+D%2C+Espanyol World

Espanyol and Real Valladolid combined for one shot on frame in a lifeless 0-0 draw in Barcelona. Moreno came perhaps closest to scoring when he pushed his header wide of the post from close range, but neither side created the necessary spark to decide the affair. The rather underwhelming draw left Javier Aguirre's side nine points clear of the relegation zone with 12 matches to play.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613962 Giovani Dos Santos, W, Mallorca Giovani+Dos+Santos%2C+W%2C+Mallorca World

The influential schemer provided the service for the stoppage time winner in Mallorca's last-gasp 2-1 victory over Granada. Dos Santos curled a corner kick into the penalty area in the 93rd minute. Tomer Hemed rose highest and pushed his header just over the goal line to ensure Mallorca collected all three points from the affair. The relegation-threatened side now sits just four points from safety.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613964 Carlos Vela, F, Real Sociedad Carlos+Vela%2C+F%2C+Real+Sociedad World

Vela sparked a furious comeback as Sociedad and Real Betis shared six goals in a pulsating draw at Estadio Anoeta. The in-form winger grabbed his 12th goal of the season six minutes after halftime to provide a response to the salvos from Jorge Molina and Dorlan Pabón. Inigo Martinez and Xabi Prieto handed the home side the advantage, but Pabón struck after 66 minutes to ensure the sides ended the match on level terms.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 1-3 31613961 Andres Guardado, W, Valencia Andres+Guardado%2C+W%2C+Valencia World

Valencia shipped a late goal to settle for a 2-2 draw with Levante at the Mestalla. Jonas and Roberto Soldado canceled out Vicente Iborra's opener to set Los Che on the path to victory. Jose Barkero thwarted those plans when he pounced a minute from time to give the visitors – distracted by rumors surrounding Obafemi Martins' potential move to Seattle – a point for their troubles. Valencia now sits one point outside of the Champions League places.
