Pumas out, Cruz Azul and Toluca through

Toluca beat Tecos 2-0 in the day's first game, a result that is a surprise to absolutely nobody.

Meanwhile, the real upset was Cruz Azul and Pumas. Cruz Azul took out Pumas with a 3-1 win on Sunday, made even more surprising by Pumas' early goal. Pumas took a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute when Francisco Palencia scored but Cruz Azul got a goal right back as Gerardo Torrado scored in the 6th minute. Goals by Cesar Villaluz and Miguel Sabah scored for Cruz Azul in the second half.

I'll put up the complete highlights later (if and when they are available) but for now here's Francisco Palencia's goal and subsequent celebration. Let me know if the celebration looks familiar.

(Incidentally, aside from "Paco" another of Palencia's nicknames is "El Gatillero" or "The Gunman" or "The Gunner")

And here are Toluca's goals:
