Mexicans scrape into last four of World Club Cup

Pachuca from Mexico reached the semi-finals of the World Club Cup with a hard-won 1-0 victory over Wydad Casablanca after extra time on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.

The only goal was scored by Victor Guzman in the 112th minute. Wydad played with 10 men from the 69th minute after Brahim Nakach was sent off following a second yellow card.

Pachuca, the club champion of the Caribbean and North and Central American region, will face Copa Libertadores winner Gremio in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

The Brazilians, like European champion Real Madrid, have a bye straight to the last four.
