It seems that once again an American team has studied the Mexican teams well and this time we are talking about the current champion of the Major League Soccer he Columbus Crewwho has had an impeccable participation in the CONCACAF tournament and has clear objectives: Get the pass to the largest club World Cup that has been organized in the history of the tournament, which will have the most important squads of all the confederations.

The American monarch has shown not to fear Mexico and this was reflected since the last Leagues Cup in which they beat the current Mexican soccer champion América by 4 goals to 1, showing their weak side and possibly causing their premature elimination in the tournament.

However, once again it seems that they will not be an easy rival for the Tuzos of Pachuca because the squad has an offensive arsenal well directed by Juan Camilo Hernández and Diego Rossi who come from great squads and know how not to slow down their pace of play if the game is not won. .

Columbus was not afraid to go to the volcano to play one on one against Tigres and although they went on penalties, they were never seen to have a low profile and despite the circumstances they eliminated those led by Siboldi with character, which is decisive in highly demanding games. ,mainly when you are aware of what is being disputed.

Once again facing a royal team, they knew how to control the entire millionaire Rayados squad that seems to have not adapted correctly to the Tano Ortiz and they took advantage to take the advantage playing at home by 2 goals to one and although it seemed that Monterrey was waking up, they annulled all hope in the last minutes of the first half when they tied the match, increasing the distance between both clubs.

Finally they put the last nails in the coffin of scratches with two subsequent goals by Christian Rodríguez and Steven Moreira, humiliating Monterrey in the steel giant and in front of their people who thought they had it easy without measuring the power of the last club gravedigger Mexicans. Likewise, Columbus ended all Carlos Vela’s hopes last tournament when, with a stroke of authority, LAFC stayed on the path to getting its first star.

Finally, the MLS once again seems to be neutralizing Mexican soccer, however, there are two games left to complete the feat, although it seems difficult with the “Moroccan” Idrissi and the Venezuelan Salomón Rodón led by Almada and the successful Pachuca youth team.
