León's Key Player

Rodolfo Cota has been a factor in keeping the goal at zero in this Guard1anes 2020. Despite the fact that Leon has not been the best on the pitch, the emerald goalkeeper was able to contain Monterrey's insistence in the last match and, in view of the very likely arrival of Cruz Azul, Cota could be key to keeping Leon unbeaten.

Cruz Azul's Key Player

After not playing against Puebla due to a suspension, Jonathan Rodríguez returns for the match against León, one of his favorite teams to score goals. El Cabecita' records five goals against panzas verdes and this afternoon he will try to increase his scoring quota that could lead Cruz Azul to the victory.

León: Last lineup

Cota; Burón, Tesillo, Barreiro, Rodríguez; Montes, Moreno, Mena, Meneses; Sosa, Gigliotti

Cruz Azul: Last lineup

Corona; Escobar, Lichnovsky, Domínguez, Aldrete; Yotún, Romo, Baca, Hernández; Pineda, Caraglio. 

The referees

The central referee of this Cruz Azul vs. León will be César Arturo Ramos; Michel Alejandro Morales, first line; Lorenzo Soto, second line; Alejandro Funk, fourth assistant.

To remain undefeated

Despite being undefeated, Leon has generated some doubts in this tournament's start. Like Cruz Azul, they have a share of one win and one draw but, unlike La Máquina, Leon have struggled to score. 



In their home debut, weather conditions probably also played a part in their 1-0 win over Monterrey. That is the only goal they have scored so far in this tournament. Ignacio Ambriz's team will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record and reflect the attacking football they are used to.

 

Adding up again at home

In the last match, La Máquina de Siboldi managed to salvage a point in the dying moments of the game after a 1-1 draw on their visit to Puebla.  A key factor was that the climate and conditions on the pitch were not optimal for developing the best football, and although Cruz Azul dominated most of the game, they were not forceful. On this day, Siboldi's players will be looking to return to winning ways and stay on top. 

 

 

Kick-off time

The Cruz Azul vs León match will be played at the stadium Olímpico Universitario, in CDMX, Mexico. The kick-off is scheduled at 8:00pm ET.
