The Cruz Azul vs Leon Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, September 28, 2013 (3:00 PM) at the Estadio Azul. Rated as the best match of the week, Cruz Azul and Leon will attempt to earn a victory which would put them closer to a playoff qualification. The ‘cementeros’ have not won in two games therefore, a win against the undefeated Leon is a must in their attempt to remain in the league’s top 8.
The ‘Maquina Azul’ receives the always difficult Leon this Saturday where they will attempt to not lose their third straight match while playing home. Most importantly, a loss or even a tie could leave Cruz Azul dangling between 8th or 9th place of the regular standings. A win against Leon is obligatory for the team who just a couple of months ago was playing for the Clausura 2013 title.
Meanwhile, the team coached by Gustavo Matosas has 22 points, and is tied in points for first place with Club America. Leon has been wonderful throughout the Apertura 2013, not necessarily due to their offense, but more-so because of their possession on the midfield and their outstanding defense. Leon has the best defense in the Liga MX after receiving only 7 goals after 11 games.

The Cruz Azul vs Leon match will be fast paced, dynamic, and well-worth watching. These two sides have talented squads and will likely be in this season’s playoffs.
