The Chivas Guadalajara vs Cruz Azul Liga MX match will be held this Saturday, February 1, 2014 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. The ‘Rebaño Sagrado’ and ‘Cementeros’ are two of the remaining three teams (the other is Toluca) in the Clausurua 2014 who are still undefeated. Saturday’s match will not only be the must-watch game of Week 5, but it will be interesting to see if either side can retain their current streak.
The team coached by Jose Luis Real has been a nice surprise this season after the first four games. In that span, Chivas has won 1, and tied 3, gaining 6 points and currently sitting 7th in the regular standings. The biggest strength for the ‘tapatios’ has been their defense, as they have been solid, only conceding 3 goals. However, although Chivas is undefeated, they still have much to improve as their offense has been weak throughout the first weeks.
Cruz Azul is arguably the best team in the Liga MX at the moment. The team made a tremendous turn-around since the removal of Guillermo Vazquez from the coaching position, putting in that place Luis Fernando Tena. With Tena, the ‘cementeros’ sit in 1st place with 10 points, after 3 wins and 1 tie. Moreover, they have the best defense with only one goal received, and are tied for the best offense with seven goals scored.
Chivas Guadalajara vs Cruz Azul Prediction
Both Chivas and Cruz Azul enter Saturday’s game in great shape, and with the urge to keep their undefeated streak alive. This match is considered the match-of-the-week, and it will live up to its hype. The Rebaño Sagrado will use their same style of play, but Cruz Azul is too strong at the moment. The Chivas Guadalajara vs Cruz Azul match will end in a 1-0 win for the visiting side.
