Los Tuzos already have a cup and a half in the 2022 Opening, well in the first leg of the Liga MX final they crushed Toluca and it seems that they totally knocked him out.

Although, all is not lost for Toluca, it does seem that the 5-1 in the first leg is quite a heavy slab on the back of the choriceros -that not even Cardozo himself could trace-.

So, since Pachuca already did a great job in winning the championship in Apertura 2022, It is a good time to remember the last Pachuca team that managed to lift the title.

It was almost six years ago (Opening 2016) and although it seems that many things have not changed, the truth is that the reality is totally different, because yes the things that are experienced in Liga MX are very different.

Some of that squad have already been champions in other teams, some others made the leap to the Old Continent and others have already retired to take roles in the coaching staff of different teams.
