Concacaf Champions League 2010 2011 Monterrey Cruz Azul on MiamiGunners Match Of The Week

concacaf champions league 2010/11
semifinals first leg
16th march 2011: 

monterrey v. cruz azul


The second of the two Concacaf Champions League semifinals (this one also known as the regional final of the Mexico division) matches up two teams with loads of recent success in the Primera Division. Monterrey and Cruz Azul have been the two most consistent Mexican clubs in recent seasons, both establishing themselves as permanent fixtures near the top of the standings, with Monterrey claiming two of the last three league titles. Cruz Azul, in spite of this recent success, are still in many ways known more for their failures. La Maquina have repeatedly come up short on the championship stage in the Mexican Primera, finishing as league runners-up in three of the last six seasons, a trend that has duplicated itself in CCL play. The perennial bridesmaids, Cruz Azul have reached the CCL final in each of the last two years. Both times, though, they came away empty-handed; losing out to Atlante in 2009, and falling in dramatic fashion to Pachuca in a last second stoppage-time goal one year ago.

In league play so far this season both teams have been solid, if unspectacular. Monterrey have had a bit of a struggle (at least by their usual high standards), suffering four losses already this year – a number which matches their loss total from the previous two regular seasons combined. During the past month the Rayados have also been forced to weather the loss of star striker Humberto Suazo, who has been out of commission recovering from a shoulder injury. Suazo has been back training with the team this week, and may make a return to the field on Wednesday night, albeit most likely coming off the bench.
 While neither Monterrey nor Cruz Azul currently hold the top spot of their respective groups in the Primera standings, both clubs have a firm grasp on a Liguilla playoff spot. Monterrey are second in Group 1 behind Tigres, while Cruz Azul are tied with Morelia for second in Group 3, behind first place Pumas UNAM. The two sides do enter Wednesday’s semifinal on a bit of an upswing, as both are coming off wins in league play over the past weekend. Monterrey have had more time to rest following last Friday night's 1-0 road win over Necaxa. Cruz Azul have a much shorter turnaround following their huge win over Club America in Sunday night's Clasico Joven. 

While it was an incredible victory, rivalry games are emotionally taxing. Cruz Azul will have to avoid a letdown this week, and make sure they bring a renewed sense of urgency to Wednesday night’s match in Monterrey. (Jeremiah Oshan on sbnation.com)




The 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League is the 3rd edition of the CONCACAF Champions League under its current format. The tournament began on July 27, 2010 and will run through April 2011. The winner will gain a berth in the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup.

Twenty-four teams participated in the 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League from the North American, Central American, and Caribbean zones. Nine of the teams came from North America, twelve from Central America, and three from the Caribbean.
Teams may be disqualified and replaced if they don't have a stadium for the tournament that CONCACAF deems suitable. If a club fails to meet the standards for its home stadium, this club must find a suitable stadium in its own country. If said club fails to provide the adequate facilities, it will run the risk of being replaced. 
Central America: 12 Central American clubs can qualify to the Champions League. If one or more clubs is precluded, it will be supplanted by a club from another Central American federation. The reallocation would be based on results from the Champions League 2009–10.
Caribbean: If any Caribbean club is precluded, it will supplanted by the "CFU Club Championship 2010" 4th place finisher.
For the Central American representatives that qualify via split seasons, in nations that play a playoff to determine a national champion, the winner will gain the nation's top spot, and in nations that don't, total points over both seasons, followed by other tiebreakers, will determine which team gains the nation's top spot.
After having analyzed previous results, the CONCACAF Executive Committee approved a reallocation of berths compared to the previous two seasons, giving Panama one automatic place in the Group Stage while making both of El Salvador's qualifiers go through the Preliminary Round.

  2. And now it's time for the oh so critical CONCACAF Gold Cup 2011.
    We are extremely excited for this year's Gold Cup and are completely confident that it will be the best ever. CONCACAF general secretary Chuck Blazer said in a statement. "We are bringing our fans the region's best football in fantastic venues with a lot on the line. It is truly a can't-miss event."
