2007 SuperLiga - Must win night

SuperLiga flairs back into action tonight with two high stakes games. Four teams will enter; only two leave alive.

Alright, no one will die, but these two games look to be as fantastic as the previous matches in this tournament because all four teams still have a chance of advancing to the knockout stage. With pride and money on the line, you can beat these games will be good viewing.

The big news for many is David Beckham missing the match (look at the Craig’s List DFW for more), however if you are in the area, you should still go. FCD has been the most unlucky side in the tournament as they are two horrible calls away from a full six points (uncalled handball for Guadalajara's goal in the first match and an additional goal in the second match wrongly called offside) while LA handled Pachuca but were run like cheap stockings by Guadalajara. Because of this FCD must have a win while LA can sneak by with a tie. This is the setup for an explosive, physical match with each player knowing that failure means no million-dollar bonus for the club.

Over the last few years Pachuca has moved from good side to top class team in the Mexican league, which has not been fun for Guadalajara (or Club America) to watch. Whenever these two clash, it is a good event but tonight it will be something even bigger as Pachuca must win if they want to go to the second round. Guadalajara looked a bit sluggish against Dallas but turned it on against LA while Pachuca still have not come together just right, however I think they will be able to get it together for this one.
