Cruz Azul beats Pumas to reach CCL final

Cristian Riveros and Horacio Cervantes scored to lead Cruz Azul
into the final of the CONCACAF Champions’ League with a 5-0 win
over fellow Mexican team Pumas on Tuesday.

Cruz Azul lost the first leg 1-0 last week, but Riveros tied
the aggregate scores with a 37th minute strike and Horacio
Cervantes headed the home side into the lead from a corner in the
74th.

Pumas had Dario Veron sent off in the 76th minute and Adrian
Cortes hit the resulting free kick into the top corner before
Rogelio Chavez and Gerardo Lugo completed the comfortable victory
with late goals.

In the final, Cruz Azul will play the winner of Wednesday’s
other all-Mexican semi between Pachuca and Toluca. The first leg in
Toluca finished 1-1.
