Mexico Could win promotion to top division in Mexico
Diego Maradona is on the verge of another footballing miracle with his Dorados side in Mexico.
The small club from Sinaloa are on the verge of reaching the play-off final which, if they win, could take them to Mexico’s top flight.
Dorado take a 3-1 lead into the second leg of their semi-final with Mineros de Zacatecas on Sunday morning.
This could be the second successive time that Maradona has led Dorados to the play-off final after losing out last December to the much-fancied Atletico San Luis – Atletico Madrid‘s affiliate club in Mexico.
They could face San Luis again this time, with their semi-final with Venados tied at 1-1 after the first leg.
If Dorados manage to win this play-off final, they will compete with San Luis in a grand final to see who earns promotion to the top flight.
Maradona‘s team have gone 12 league matches unbeaten over the course of the last two terms and have won each of their last three games.
Now, they are just four games from Liga MX – the promised land.
