Mexican Clausura 2007 final
Club America vs Pachuca at the Azteca stadium
This weekend will be an emotional one for one of Mexico's stars as Cuauhtemoc Blanco bids farewell after 15 years in the Mexican Primera and gets ready to see his career out across the border for his new club, Chicago Fire.
Today in a battle for the best Mexican club, traditional powerhouse CF America take on the new kids on the block, Pachuca, the reigning Clausura champs. Pachuca in the last ten years has won 4 Mexican titles, the CONCACAF 2002 and 2007 titles, and the 2006 Copa Sudamericana.
On display will be Chicago Fire's summer signing, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who they hope will provide the lift that Juan Pablo Angel is giving the NY Red Bulls. It will also be Blanco's final set of matches for America.
Blanco is in fine nick with 7 goals and along with Paraguayan striker Salvador Cabanas has scored 16 of America's 26 goals. But Pachuca's attack is far more potent with 36 goals and strikers Juan Carlos Cacho and Christian Jimenez have accounted for 17 goals of those goals.
