What you need to know:
Cruz Azul needed the victory no matter what to continue dreaming of reaching the play in, that is, the playoffs of the Liga MX
When they said that Chivas and Cruz Azul would be the highlight of the Saturday matchday in Liga MX, It was impossible not to get excited about a real great game…but who are we kidding, it was an ideal meeting, but to fall asleep.
Better than any pill, with or without a prescription, This match on matchday 16 of Liga MX was the best medicine if you hadn’t slept well or if you needed a 90-minute coyotito.
The worst of all is not that these teams have been boring and dull, because that can happen even in the best families (there they tell you the final of the Copa Libertadores), but that, Both Chivas and Cruz Azul were fighting for something important ahead of the Liga MX league.
The reasons why the “machine” and the “herd” needed to risk so much more
The penultimate day of the Liga MX was played and some teams are thinking about the league -or new play in-. Basically, Chivas fights at the top of the table and Cruz Azul, not making a fool of themselves.
Those from Guadalajara came in fourth place and although they qualify directly for six, A defeat left them with a high chance of going to the play in.. That’s why this match was about taking great risks.
Cruz Azul was risking its life, it needed a victory no matter what, to continue dreaming of the possibility of the playoffs. He was the most needy, but he jumped onto the field as if he were America, that is, the leader.
Then we can “justify” Chivas a little more, because he had no need to still depend on them. Buuuut, and Cruz Azul? Why didn’t she give him two more pesos?
At minute 56, Padilla entered and, at 17 years old, was eating up all of Cruz Azul. It was until the last minute that eliminated the “machine” to leave him with less than 1% chance of qualifying.
