Maradona sees hope of championship slip way with 4-2 loss

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Diego Armando Maradona's Dorados team has lost a 4-2 match to Atletico San Luis, quashing the Argentine legend's hopes of a championship in Mexico's second division.

The Dorados of Sinaloa had won the first leg of the second-division final series 1-0, but saw an initial 2-0 lead slip away on an own-goal by Diego Barbosa on Sunday.

Maradona watched the game from the stands because he'd been expelled from the first-leg game for arguing.

The former Argentine star took over as their coach in September, when the team was struggling with just three points after six rounds and at the bottom of the standings.
