Watch out for this Venados player

The new nine-goaler for Venados, Víctor Mañón, who arrived as a hope for the team's lack of goals after the retirement of Eduardo Herrera, a gap that the Mexican striker is beginning to fill, scoring a goal for the first time against Juárez. In this tournament that is just beginning, there will surely be a lot of talk about this nine-goaler.

9:46 PM2 years ago

Watch out for this Cruz Azul player

The goalkeeper who was key for the Cementeros in the Liguilla, Sebastián Jurado, who in 8 games in the regular season kept 3 clean sheets and conceded 7 goals. Jurado had to come in for Corona, who suffered a knee injury that kept him out of the field. With the return of Gudiño to La Noria, the competition in goal will be very tight this semester.

A renewed Venados

If we are talking about teams that have been reinforced quite well, the incorporations of the Venados team have given a lot to talk about, the arrival of one of the most accomplished forwards in this Expansion League, Víctor Mañón, who stayed in Tepa last semester.

In the defensive line, there are some very young players with experience in the national team, such as Oswaldo León, Juan Vega and former university player Mauricio Reyna. Adding elements in that area left free by one of the veterans in our Mexican soccer, Jorge Enriquez 'El Chaton'.

The Titanes Del Sureste already had a friendly match a few days ago against the team from the border, directed by Hernán Cristante, a match that ended in a 1-1 draw, with Mañón making his debut as a goal scorer.

A new beginning

Cruz Azul is renewing itself, with the last departure of Peruvian coach Juan Reynoso, causing a surprise, the Celestial team found a new coach directly from Uruguay, Diego Aguirre, who has already had a few days of preparation for this match.

The 'Maquina' is currently doing preseason training in Cancun, with a very reduced squad due to the absence of national team players, in addition to the four recent departures of Aldrete, Aguilar, Mendoza and Otero. In addition, three new players have joined the team: Charly Rodríguez, who left last season due to injury, Jesús Corona and the return of goalkeeper Gudiño from his session in Tepatitlán. 

This will be Aguirre's first game, using an alternate squad, with first team players and some U-20 players.
