Cruz Azul Preview


Cruz Azul made the necessary efforts to close the regular phase of the Liga MX Apertura 2022 in great shape, as they won their last four games. Their last victory was against Guadalajara by a score of 1-2 and thanks to those three points they will be able to play at home in the playoff match.

La Máquina faced several ups and downs throughout the season, but in the end was able to qualify for the playoffs. They achieved seven wins, three draws and seven defeats in 17 games for a total of 24 points, finishing in seventh place. What is striking is the fact that their defense was the second most vulnerable defense of the tournament, with a total of 34 goals conceded.

Absences: Alejandro Mayorga, Juan Escobar and Ramiro Funes Mori.

Probable lineup: José de Jesús Corona, Rodrigo Huescas, Luis Abram, Julio Domínguez, Ignacio Rivero, Erik Lira, Rafael Guerrero, Carlos Rodríguez, Uriel Antuna, Gonzalo Carneiro and Ángel Romero.

Leon Preview


León drew 2-2 with Tijuana in the match corresponding to Matchday 17 and that was enough to earn a place in the playoffs, although after finishing in tenth position they must play this away game. “El conjunto esmeralda” have not lost in their last two matches, but they have not been very consistent, with six wins, four draws and seven defeats in the entire opening phase of the Apertura 2022.

As visitors, Leon had a poor performance, winning only two of the nine matches they played in that condition, and their last appearance in rival territory was a 2-1 defeat against the same opponent, Cruz Azul.

Absences: David Ramirez.

Probable lineup: Rodolfo Cota, Byron Castillo, Stiven Barreiro, William Tesillo, Óscar Villa, Joel Campbell, Iván Rodríguez, Luis Montes, Yairo Moreno, Lucas Di Yorio and Víctor Dávila.

JefeBet Prediction

Both teams have players of enough quality and experience to make the difference in this match, but considering that Cruz Azul comes into this game after four consecutive wins at home, that trend should continue for them to advance to the quarterfinals.

Prediction: Cruz Azul wins by a score of 3-2.
