Moments by which Cruz Azul is closer to winning the title

The Machine beat Santos 1-0 in the first leg of the Final and we analyzed 10 situations, including the team’s attitude, for which the championship looks very close

Cruz Azul won 1-0 to Santos in the first game of the series for the title of the Guard1anes 2021 . In this way, Juan Reynoso is only 90 minutes away from ending theclub’s long drought and becoming one of the most important technicians at La Maquina .

Looking ahead to the second leg , ESPN Digital presents the 10 moments of the first leg commitment that have Cruz Azul closest to winning its first Mexican championship since 1997.


Prior to the first leg, Roberto Alvarado’s wife , Dayana Gómez, reported that they lost the baby they were expecting , which is why Cruz Azul gave the footballer permission to leave the commitment against Santos to be with his partner in a such a complicated moment. In social networks, the #FuerzaPiojo became a trend.


According to the official minutes of the MX League of the match between Guerreros and Cementeros , approximately 14,577 fans were in the stands of TSM Corona, a building that has capacity for 29,101 people.


The singer and actor from Torreón was responsible for singing the National Anthem and went viral on social networks due to the mistakes he made in his interpretation. Montero confused some stanzas as “ciño patria”, instead of “ciña oh patria” and “I think patria” instead of singing “thinks oh patria”. Also, he said, “on the finger your eternal destiny”, when the correct thing is “in heaven your eternal destiny”.


Prior to the start of the match, goalkeeper José de Jesús Corona , a reference for Cruz Azul , showed support for his teammate by wearing his shirt . The detail was highlighted by the cement fans on social networks.


In the first minutes of the match, ‘Chuy’ Corona was key to preventing La Maquina from being down on the scoreboard. The veteran Mexican goalkeeper parried a dangerous long-distance shot from Eduardo Aguirre . Without a doubt, the game and the series could have changed drastically if Corona had not made that save.


Uruguayan striker Jonathan Rodríguez was very close to getting a beautiful Chilean goal, but Carlos Acevedo , Santos goalkeeper , prevented him by starring in an extraordinary intervention. The play by ‘ Cabecita ‘ was one of the first signs that La Maquina was close to opening the scoring.


The Brazilian central defender is one of the most important men in Guillermo Almada’s scheme and he proved it by preventing Cabecita Rodriguez from going face-to-face with Acevedo. Matheus Doria’s intervention prevented the Cementero team from getting the first goal of the match.


In the first minutes of the second half, Santos opened the scoring through Alan Cervantes and quickly the Cruz Azul fans began to remember the ghosts of the past, however, the referee Fernando Guerrero pointed out Eduardo Aguirre, who had intervened in the play, and annulled the score.

El mediocampista Luis Romo se ha convertido en uno de los jugadores más importantes del Cruz Azul y ayer lo demostró al marcar el único gol del encuentro y que tiene más cerca a La Máquina del título de la Liga MX.

Tras salir del TSM Corona con la ventaja en el marcador global, Cruz Azul no se olvidó de Roberto y Dayana y les dedicó la victoria ante Santos. Los Celestes esperan levantar el título en el Estadio Azteca.
