The Jaguares Chiapas vs Cruz Azul Liga MX game will be played this Saturday, January 18, 2014 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna. The hosts Chiapas will attempt to earn their first win in the debut of their new logo. Meanwhile, Cruz Azul faces a difficult match at a difficult stadium, where a win would establish them among the first first places in the regular standings.
After the first two weeks of the Clausura 2014, Chiapas has obtained 1 point after tying Veracruz in the first week, and losing against Chivas of Guadalajara 1-0 in the last game. Although the numbers do not support it, Sergio Bueno‘s team has played well to start the season. Chiapas has had a solid defense and a good midfield, though their offense has been under-performing.
The team coached by Luis Fernando Tena has had a good start to their Clausura 2014 tournament, where after two games they have 4 points. Moreover, the ‘cementeros’ have been solid on defense with a dynamic midfield. This Saturday, they will look to maintain their good form, where a win will place them in good contention to reach the playoffs this early into the young season.
Jaguares Chiapas vs Cruz Azul Prediction
The Chiapas vs Cruz Azul game will be a good one, as both sides have demonstrated good form early into the Clausura 2014. While Jaguares has only gained 1 point, they have had good performances considering their under-talented squad (compared to the biggest teams in the Liga MX); however, they will be unable to earn their first win of the season against a strong team like Cruz Azul. The ‘cementeros’ have been efficient under Tena, and their good start to the season will remain alive this Saturday. The Jaguares Chiapas vs Cruz Azul match will end in a 2-1 win for the visiting side.
