The Veracruz vs Cruz Azul Liga MX Week 4 match will be played at the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuente on Saturday, August 3, 2013 (3:00 PM Pacific). Veracruz has had an impressive start to the Apertura 2013, and will want to continue the positive run. Cruz Azul will have a tough time in Veracruz, as they will be facing the hottest team in the Liga MX.
Veracruz started off the season with a 2-2 home draw against Chiapas, the man of the match was Angel Reyna. In Week 2, Veracruz crushed Atlante in an away game 4-2, the man of the match was once again Angel Reyna. Last week, Veracruz traveled to Guadalajara and defeated Chivas 2-0, the man of the match was… Angel Reyna.
Reyna has been absolutely fantastic, he has scored five goals in three matches, and has been the motor that keeps Veracruz running. Reyna’s future was uncertain over the summer, as there was apparently no team that wanted to take him. Veracruz decided to go after him, and use Reyna as the team’s key player. It has worked out fantastically so far, as Reyna has been able to take a modest roster to the top of the standings.
The stands at the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuente will be packed, the fans are excited of having, once again, a top tier team in their city, and a team that is in 1st place with 7 points. The Tiburones will face their toughest team so far- a Cruz Azul that is one of the favorites to make a run to the Liga MX playoffs.
Cruz Azul has had a modest start, with one win, loss, and draw, for a total of 4 points. In Week 3, Cruz Azul drew 1-1 against Jaguares at the Estadio Azul in the middle of a powerful thunderstorm. The Cementeros can’t afford a loss, and will be a very diifficult opponent for Veracruz. Also, Torrado will be allowed to play after completing his 2-game suspension earned in Week 1.
