MEXICO CITY, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Reigning Mexican champions Toluca beat Veracruz 2-1 on Wednesday to maintain an unblemished record three games into the country's Clausura championship.
The Apertura title holders, coached by Argentine Americo
Gallego, moved into a 2-0 lead with goals by Israel Lopez and
Uruguayan Gustavo Bizcayzacu offered a chink of light for
the visitors with 10 minutes remaining, but the Toluca defence
was not troubled again.
'We are playing really well and working together as a team.
It was a hard game but we deserved to win,' said Lopez.
Hot in pursuit of Toluca, Guadalajara club UAG beat Cruz
Azul by the same scoreline - Argentine Daniel Luduena
equalising Francisco Fonseca's opening goal from the penalty
spot and Brazilian Eliomar Marcon scoring the winner.
