Cruz Azul statements

Juan Reynoso, coach of Cruz Azul, spoke prior to this duel: "We have to reinvent ourselves to optimize the times, I was pleased to hear from Santi and Roberto that they like to play, we are reinventing everything to play better each time, it is not easy because an institution like this one is in a hurry to get results, in the present between national team trips and tournaments if we do not rely on science and if we are not close to the players and their emotional issue, they can collapse".

"Every time I see them better and the coexistence is better, we have had few trainings together, sometimes there are better results than performance and vice versa. We arrived much better than for the CONCACAF match and Monterrey took advantage of that moment and that we were not in the best condition".
