My favourite team couldn’t give me a better birthday gift, and tied with Pumas (the team from the National University in Mexico City) 0-0 at their stadium in Ciudad Universitaria. The match according to reports was very intense, and the goalkeepers saved the day for both teams.
Pumas used to be my second favourite team, until a fatidic day in summer 2004 when they beat Chivas at the final for that year’s Clausura. The relationship between both teams had bittered considerably since, and their meetings have now being hyped by the media as a new “Clásico”.
This time, however, the boards didn’t warm up the game, the fans mixed without consequences in the stands and after a very good game players from both teams left the field in good spirits.
