Mexican teams to play Libertadores games in Colombia

San Luis and Chivas Guadalajara, the two remaining Mexican teams in the Copa Libertadores, will have to play their next home game in Colombia because of the swine flu outbreak.

Several clubs, namely Uruguayan sides Nacional and Defensor Sporting had expressed their concerns, refusing to travel to Mexico should they be drawn with a team of that country.

As a result, continental confederation CONMEBOL decided to relocate the second-round matches involving San Luis and Chivas. Both sides will now play their home games at Bogota’s El Campin stadium, on the same day.

The virus has left a serious mark on football in Mexico. Several tournaments were cancelled and leagues games are to be played behind closed doors this weekend.
