8:42 PM2 months ago

Tijauna's key player

The visiting team has in Lucas Rodríguez one of its most important elements, who contributes to the offense with goals and his movements. 

He has three goals and one assist in the tournament, so it will be essential for him to be in shape for tonight's match. 

8:37 PM2 months ago

Cruz Azul's key player

The recently debuted Ramiro Funes Mori already showed his talent and international experience on the field last Sunday, but unfortunately the result did not work out for him. 

This double match will help him to establish himself in the Cementera backline and, why not, score another goal as he did in the match against Toluca. 

8:32 PM2 months ago

Tijauna has stumbled

After three consecutive victories, the border team has now gone two games without a win, with a loss against Toluca and a draw against Puebla. 

The latter ended with a 3-3 score in which Edgar López, Rodríguez and Ezequiel López scored for Xolos. 

8:27 PM2 months ago

Cruz Azul's worst defense

The Cementero team has not had so many offensive failures in many tournaments, which is reflected in the number of goals they have conceded this semester. 

They have scored 16 goals in seven matches, an average of more than two per game, so they will have to change the situation and, with the help of the recently debuted Ramiro Funes Mori, improve in this aspect. 

8:22 PM2 months ago

The match will be played at the Azteca

The Cruz Azul vs Xolos match will be played at the Azteca stadium, in CDMX, Mexico with a capacity of 87,000 people.
