Miami, Florida (July 17, 2018) – Futbol Marketing Group (FMG) is proud to announce that FMG clients Ventura Alvarado (Club Necaxa) and Lalo Fernandez (Tigres U.A.N.L) have completed a clean sweep this past weekend. Both players capturing the Supercopa MX and Champions of Champions Cup respectively at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles, California. The Supercopa MX 2018 match was played between Club Necaxa and Monterrey C.F. Both teams earned their spot due to winning the Copa MX titles in Apertura 2017 (Monterrey C.F.) and Clausura 2018 (Club Necaxa) respectively. USA Men’s National Team Defender Ventura Alvarado (25) played the full 90 minutes and co-captained the backline.
The Champions of Champions MX Cup 2018 match was played between Club Tigres UANL and Club Santos Laguna. Both teams earned their spot due to winning the Apertura Liga MX titles in 2017 (Tigres UANL) and Clausura 2018 (Club Santos Laguna) respectively. Argentinian National Team goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman played the full 90 minutes. Lalo Fernandez did not play and finished the 2017/18 season making the bench 40 times for Tigres UANL.
Futbol Marketing Group’s CEO, Cris Barbosa, shared his thoughts on Ventura and Lalo’s performance,“It was a great weekend for our clients capturing both titles respectively. In my opinion, this was one of Ventura’s all-around best and complete performances of his career. He won all his 1 on 1 duels, anticipated plays, played out the back, won headers and was well positioned to stop Monterrey’s high powered offense. In regards to Lalo, it has been a successful 12 months at Tigres UANL. Lalo appeared on the bench 40 times. Training every day with Argentina’s National Team goalkeeper, Nahuel Guzman, will continue to prepare him and maintain a high level of competition. Lalo needs to continue training hard and be patient because his time is coming.” (This preseason Lalo earned a clean sheet against Tigres 2-0 victory against Pachuca.)
