The Cruz Azul vs Irapuato 2013 Copa MX match will be played at the Estadio Azul on Wednesday, February 13 at 8:00 PM Eastern. Cruz Azul is looking to solidify its standing as the #1 team in Group 3 of the Copa MX. Irapuato is having a terrible season and would likely be happy if it doesn’t get destroyed by the Mexico City based squad.
Cruz Azul is 1 of the 2 undefeated teams left in the Liga MX (the other being league-leading Tigres), although, they have won only 2 matches, and tied the other 4. In the Copa MX, Cruz Azul won both its matches against Lobos BUAP and leads Group 3 with 7 points, 2 ahead of Liga MX rival Atlas. This version of the Cementeros is solid but far from outstanding.
Last weekend Cruz Azul hosted Pumas in a week 6 Liga MX match, and were only capable of earning a 1-1 draw. Pumas is quite a mediocre team, so it’s a little worrisome that Cruz Azul would drop points at home against them. However, the Cementeros should be able to come out victorious from the Cruz Azul vs Irapuato match, the Cruz Azul roster is simply far superior.
Irapuato has had a terrible start to the season, losing 4 out of 6 Ascenso MX matches, winning 1 and drawing 1. In the Copa MX, they gained a single point in 2 matches. Thus, Irapuato has played 8 matches in 2013 and won only 1, lost 5, and tied 2. It is very likely that Irapuato will go on with a completely alternate team against Cruz Azul, holding off the best players for the Ascenso MX weekend match.
