Key player of Cruz Azul

If we continue talking about youth players, Santiago Giménez is a fundamental element for Cruz Azul at present. 

Whether from the bench or as a starter, he has scored very important goals for the Celeste team, such as in the previous matchday's draw against Santos. 

He also showed in the last Liguilla that he knows how to impose conditions in the area, scoring in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals, and now he will have to be present to help La Máquina get out of this bad Start. 

12:59 AMa month ago

Necaxa's key player

Necaxa's youth midfielder, Alejandro Zendejas, has already had the opportunity to showcase himself since last year, but these have not been the best seasons for him or for the Aguascalientes team in general. 

This time he will have to show much more of his ability to recover and contribute to the team's attack, so that they can score the goals they have been missing so much. 

It is worth mentioning that the only goal for the local team was scored by him in the match against América the previous matchday. 

12:54 AMa month ago

Cruz Azul will be looking for a victory

The Mexican soccer champion team will be looking for its first three points after a poor start to the season. 

On the first day of the season, they lost to Mazatlán at home with a convincing 2-0 score and then went to Coahuila to draw with Santos Laguna 1-1. 

Today, with some players returning from national team duty and vacations, they will be looking for their three points of the tournament to get out of this bad streak. 

 

12:49 AMa month ago

Necaxa will try to avoid defeat

The "hydro-rayos" team has suffered two consecutive defeats, which marks a bad start for the team coached by Memo Vázquez.

However, this time they will be looking to get out of this bad streak after losing their last game against América with a tight score of 2-1 and a performance that was acceptable but was not enough to tie the game. 

12:44 AMa month ago

The match will be played at the Victoria stadium

The Necaxa vs Cruz Azul match will be played at the stadium Victoria on Aguascalientes, Mexico with a capacity of 25,500 people. 

This stadium already has a long history in Mexican soccer, having been the home of Necaxa since 2003. 

The name of the stadium was sold in a 25-year concession to Grupo Modelo, which assigned the name Victoria to the stadium after the brand name of one of its beers.
