Key player Cruz Azul

Santiago Giménez | With Jonathan Rodríguez's goal drought, Mexican youth striker Santi Giménez has had to lead La Máquina's offensive line and is currently the team's leading scorer with four goals in the tournament. In order to challenge for the top spots, Giménez will have to be a factor in taking all three points with goals.

7:04 PMa month ago

Key player Chivas

Raúl Gudiño | Since returning to the starting goalkeeping role, Gudiño has played an important role in keeping a clean sheet. In Chivas' last seven games, he has allowed only two goals. Against a dangerous front line like Cruz Azul's, Gudiño will have to be a factor in preventing goals as he was last game against Xolos.

Jesús Corona, Luis Romo, Adrián Aldrete, Pablo Aguilar,  Juan Escobar, Ignacio Rivero, Yoshimar Yotún, Roberto Alvarado, Guillermo Fernández, Bryan Angulo, Jonathan Rodríguez.

Cruz Azul: For the first places

The current Mexican soccer champion is in an unstable moment in the current tournament.
The squad coached by Juan Reynoso will be looking to get back to winning ways that could take them to the top of the table and thus qualify for the top four in the general standings, a zone in which America, Atlas, Tigres and Toluca are currently located. Cruz Azul will start matchday 15 being just one win away from fourth place, but in order to get there they need to take all three points from the Akron Stadium and for Rayados and Toluca to fail to win. 'La Maquina' is coming off an insipid goalless draw against Atlas and is currently in sixth place with 19 points from four wins, seven draws and only two defeats.

6:39 PMa month ago

Chivas, in a tight spot in the standings

The red and white team coached by Marcelo Michel Leaño is still not finding consistency, but they are close to their first objective, which is to qualify for the playoffs. However, the Rebaño Sagrado is in a very tight spot in the table as they are three points behind fourth place and there are several teams with 19, 18 and 17 points. Chivas are coming off a goalless draw against the tournament's bottom team, Xolos de Tijuana. This result placed the red and white team in eighth place with 18 points, almost the same as today's opponent, who have one more point than the team from Tijuana. Chivas' record in this tournament is four wins, six draws and four defeats.

6:34 PMa month ago

The match will be played at the Stadium Akron

The Chivas vs Cruz Azul match will be played at the Akron Stadium, in Jalisco, Mexico. The kick-off is scheduled at 10:05 pm ET.
6:29 PMa month ago

Matchday 15

Tonight, Saturday's matchday 15 activity comes to an end and will feature a very attractive match between two of the teams considered to be the 'great' ones. On one side is the reigning champion of Mexican soccer, Cruz Azul, which has had an acceptable tournament and is looking to get into the top four, while Chivas, still unable to find its way under Michel Leaño, needs a win to avoid dropping out of the playoff positions.
