León crash out of Champions League as Pachuca progress (VIDEO)


Liga MX bicampeones, León crashed out of the CONCACAF Champions League last night after a 2-1 defeat in Costa Rica to group winners, Herediano. With both sides enjoying victories over Group 7 whipping boys. Isidro Metapán this was the deciding game and La Fiera got off to a poor start as Gabriel Gómez curled in an excellent long range free kick.  Oscar Granados headed in a second with 20 minutes remaining leaving León on the brink and although Elías Hernández pulled one back late on, it was not enough to prevent Las Esmeraldas from falling at the first hurdle.

Pachuca enjoyed far better fortune as they ran out comfortable 4-1 winners over Guatemala’s, Municipal to top Group 1 and ensure qualification. Goals from Diego de Buen (penalty), Ariel Nahuelpan, Diego Buonanotte and Jurgen Damm concluded a straight-forward evening for Los Tuzos.

Herediano  2 – 1  León

Pachuca  4 – 1  Municipal
