Toluca dumped from Sudamericana

Colo Colo dumped Mexican club Toluca from the Copa Sudamericana last night, beating the 2-0, for a 4-1 aggregate scoreline. CONCACAF's only other club in the tournament, Pachuca, hold a 1-0 lead on aggregate and host Brazilian club Atletico Paranaense in the return leg of their home/away series. Pachuca are hoping to be the second straight Mexican club to advance to the Copa Sudamericana finals, as PUMAS reached the finals last year, losing to Argentine ubber club, Boca Juniors.

Hopefully, Pachuca can pull this off tonight and reach the finals. If Mexican/CONCACAF clubs continue to excel in this tournament and the Copa Libertadores, the more we might see CONMEBOL open up more spots for CONCACAF clubs in their tournaments. Hell, CONCACAF might want to consider inviting some of the smaller nations to send a club or two to the CONCACAF Champions Cup.
