Six South Americans receive a suspension game in Mexican soccer

Six South Americans, including Uruguayan Diego Alonso, coach of Pachuca, received a suspension penalty in the Clausura 2018 Mexican soccer tournament, after showing violent or unsportsmanlike attitudes at the weekend.

Alonso was expelled in the duel that his team won yesterday to Veracruz, for a claim that the coach did not recognize, and as a consequence will be absent on Wednesday when the Tuzos receive Tijuana on the seventh day of the championship.

Colombian striker Aviles Hurtado of Monterrey will also not be active on Wednesday when his team receives the Cruz Azul, as a result of his expulsion yesterday against Toluca after adding two yellow cards, the second by violent play.

Midfielder Alexander Mejía, also Colombian, received his fifth caution of the championship in the victory of the Leon 2-1 on Puebla and was another that received a punishment game, as confirmed today by the disciplinary commission of the Mexican Football Federation.

Tijuana will have three casualties on Wednesday when visiting Pachuca, the Paraguayan defender Pablo Aguilar, expelled on Friday against Querétaro when receiving two yellow cards, that of Ecuadorian striker Miler Bolaños, who took a red for kicking an opponent, and the one of the Argentine steering wheel Damián Musto, when adding his fifth card in that same encounter.

The other who will suffer a veto on day seven is the Peruvian defender Luis Advíncula, expelled from the game won by his team, 3-1 at Atlas, after receiving two cautions.

The Clausura will resume tomorrow with three matches that will mark the beginning of the seventh round, Atlas-Necaxa, Lobos Buap-Tigres and América-Morelia. On Wednesday, Leon will visit Santos Laguna, Guadalajara to Querétaro, Cruz Azul to Monterrey, Toluca to Puebla, Veracruz to leader Pumas UNAM and Tijuana to Pachuca.

The regular phase of the Clausura will last until April 29 when the eight teams qualified to the league and the team that will descend to the Ascent division will be decided.
