The Atlante vs Cruz Azul match will be played this Sunday, February 9, 2014 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Andres Quintana Roo. The cementeros travel to Cancun where they will attempt to earn the 3 points, remain in first place of the standings, and also remain undefeated. Meanwhile, Atlante will try to gain ground on Atlas who is their main relegation rival.
The team coached by Pablo Marini has 5 points after the first five weeks of the Clausura 2014. The ‘potros’ have not played terribly, although the results have not been entirely how they would like them to be. As of Sunday morning, Atlas has played one more game than Atlante, which has the Potros 8 points behind of the relegation table. With a win against Cruz Azul, Atlante would be within 5 points, while a loss would only put them closer to the Ascenso MX.
Completely contrary to Atlante’s situation is Cruz Azul, who currently leads the league in points and is undefeated. After the first five matches, the team coached by Alfredo Tena has 13 points, with a league leading offense (9 goals) and defense (1 goal against). The ‘cementeros’ have played very well this season, having good command on the midfield, which has allowed for the team to be stable throughout the field. In Cancun, Cruz Azul has a great opportunity to win, and be closer to a playoff seed.
