5:33 PM21 days ago

Necaxa key player

Uruguayan striker Rodrigo Aguirre is the team's top scorer, scoring 11 goals during the regular tournament, so Jimmy will be counting on him to hurt Cruz Azul.
5:28 PM21 days ago

Face to face

In the last five meetings between these teams, Cruz Azul dominates with three wins to Necaxa's one and a scoreless draw. All matches were in Liga MX, from 2019 to the present.
5:23 PM21 days ago

Cruz Azul key player

Uriel Antuna has won over the Cementera fans with his performances since his arrival to the team and Juan Reynoso's approach has allowed the number 7 to shine and on more than one occasion, make La Máquina breathe with his goals.


5:18 PM21 days ago

Necaxa

Los Rayos del Necaxa have definitely improved since the arrival of Jaime Lozano to the bench. Necaxa finished in ninth place in the Clausura 2022 general table with seven wins, two ties and eight defeats with 21 goals scored and 21 conceded and a total of 23 points. The hand of "Jimmy" has been seen with greater strength in the defense and his pupils recognize it, in this regard Agustín Oliveros stated the following: "I think that the weapons we have is a very important defensive solidity, order, an overwhelming pressure at some point of the game, when we think it is convenient, that has given us many goals and especially away goals". Lozano took over from Pablo Guede, who had not started off on the right foot with four wins, two draws and five defeats.
5:13 PM21 days ago

Cruz Azul

Cruz Azul finished the regular phase of the tournament as eighth in the general table. With seven wins, four ties and six defeats with a total of 25 points and a goal difference of plus three, scoring 20 goals and conceding 17. The team coached by Reynoso has not been able to stay away from off-field dramas, the arrest of the assistant coach shook the dressing room and the loss of Jesús Corona has been a very sensitive loss for the starting lineup, added to the departures suffered by the team at the beginning of the tournament and although Jurado has solved it in a great way, the goal is the weapon that ends up not arriving for the sky-blue team. Santiago Giménez and Uriel Antuna could be the keys for La Máquina's attack to capitalize.
5:08 PM21 days ago

Playoffs

The regular tournament of the Clausura 2022 of Liga MX is behind us and, as happens in the final stages of Mexican football, anything can happen, and no prediction is completely reliable. On this occasion, the Necaxa rays will try to snatch the Liguilla from the Cementeros, who had the direct pass in their hands in the last stages of the championship, however, the results were complicated and now everything is at stake against the Aguascalientes team.
