Last match Santos vs Cruz Azul

Since the 2021 final that saw Cruz Azul become league champions, this pair of teams have given us some very good quality matches, the last of which took place last season on matchday 7 as well. In a great match where the Laguneros took the victory from the Azteca stadium in the 94th minute, in a very exciting final. The goals were scored by Preciado at minute 5; in the second half, Rivero scored for the Celestes at 64' and the hero of the match was none other than Diego Medina when he finished off a good assist from Fernando Gorriarán.

8:41 PM18 hours ago

Cruz Azul key player

In the last two matches, with Juan Escobar as central defender, Cruz Azul has stopped conceding goals, so it would be very important to keep him in that position. 

The Paraguayan player is very important for the Celeste backline and also knows how to go forward and score important goals. 

8:36 PM18 hours ago

Santos' key player

If it were not for goalkeeper Carlos Acevedo, Santos' history would be completely different as they would not be able to find order in the back line. 

In many games it has been the Mexican goalkeeper who has saved them from losing or conceding many goals, making him the most important man on the team. 

8:31 PM18 hours ago

Santos very irregular

Despite the victory in the last game when the Guerreros beat Atlas at home, the team led by Fentanes is looking for improvement. 

With five goals conceded, they have not been one of the worst defenses, but they are not finding an order to not depend so much on their goalkeeper. 

8:26 PM19 hours ago

Cruz Azul with two clean sheets

At the beginning of the season, the defense was a martyrdom for the Celestes, as they had conceded 10 goals in four matches; however, after making some adjustments, Diego Aguirre's team has improved their defense. 

In the last match they defeated Necaxa by the minimum score at the Azteca stadium. 

8:21 PM19 hours ago

The match will be played at the TSM

The Santos vs Cruz Azul match will be played at the stadium TSM, in Torreón, Mexico with a capacity of 30,000 people.
