Face to face

The last five matches between the two teams have been divided into three in Liga MX, and two during their participation in the CONCACAF Champions League. Monterrey has the advantage with three wins: two in the league and one in the CCL, they have tied on one occasion and Cruz Azul has only one win, so the historical statistics are in Monterrey's favor. The match will be played at the Estadio Azteca, that is to say, under the Celeste's home ground.
6:46 PM9 days ago


On the Rayados de Monterrey side, it seems that they will be at their peak after being crowned champions of the Concachampions against Club América just days before the conclusion of the regular phase of the Liga MX. The title restored confidence in Javier Aguirre's process at the helm of Rayados, which was beginning to be questioned for its limited effectiveness. Rayados entered the playoffs in ninth position, with five wins, seven draws and five losses, the Monterrey-based team had a total of 22 points. Rogelio Funes Mori, the man to watch on offense for La Pandilla, has also fallen short in his scoring duties and only scored 4 goals, as has Duván Vergara, with whom the Rayados attack has fallen back.

Cruz Azul

Cruz Azul, the reigning champion of Mexican soccer, is looking to defend the title it won with its eighth star, however, the road has been more complicated than expected and with a performance that leaves more doubts than certainties for the sky blue fans, La Máquina will be facing Rayados de Monterrey in search of a ticket to the Liguilla. Juan Reynoso's team has not found the most spectacular and dominant game during this Grita México 2021, due to injuries and absences due to national team call-ups. Juan Reynoso has stated that Cruz Azul has struggled to find its core team and that is the reason for the multiple changes in the starting eleven. In addition, the lack of lethality of the players who made a difference in the championship tournament this semester has contributed to the lack of goals scored by the Celestes. Jonathan Rodríguez, who was the Celeste goal-scoring leader in the previous season, was only able to score three times this time around, which exemplifies the lack of goals for the Cementeros. Cruz Azul is in eighth place in the playoffs. With five wins, eight ties and four defeats, with a total of 23 points, 21 goals scored and 17 conceded.
6:36 PM9 days ago


In the Guardianes 2020, the playoff system was introduced, an instance prior to the Liguilla in which the teams that finish the regular tournament in positions 5 to 12 face each other for four tickets to the Mexican soccer's big party. Number 5 will face number 12, number 6 will face number 11 and so on. This completes the eight teams that will seek the Liga MX title.
In this phase, a single match will be played in which the teams will have to play a series of penalty kicks in case of a tie.
