Toluca juggernaut rolls on against Veracruz

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

Carlos Esquivel.

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.
