The Queretaro vs Cruz Azul Liga MX match will take at the Estadio Corregidora this Friday, February 21, 2014 (5:30 PM Pacific). Gallos Blancos and ‘cementeros’ will kick-off Week 8 of the Clausura 2014 in what is expected to become one of the best games this weekend. Queretaro is in position to remain in a playoff seed were they to earn the win, while Cruz Azul will attempt to improve on their six game winning streak.
Gallos Blancos have demonstrated thus far into the season that they have what it takes to be a respectable competitor in this league. Two seasons ago they finished the table in 8th place, but due to their ‘fake’ relegation, they were unable to compete in the playoffs. Last season they once again finished in the top 8 where they lost against Santos Laguna in the quarterfinals.
During this Clausura 2014, the team coached by Ignacio Ambriz has shown good lapses of soccer.Although the team has only scored 6 goals for one of the worst offenses in the league, they have also only received 6 demonstrating they have a solid midfield and defense. Against Cruz Azul, they face one of the toughest games in their league, although a win will take them to 13 points and in playoff position.
Cruz Azul has kept their extraordinary start to the season alive, as last week in the finals seconds against Puebla Marco Fabian scored a wonder goal to earn the 1-0 win. With that win, the team coached by Luis Fernando Tena now has a league leading 19 points and is currently on a six game winning streak.
The outstanding numbers by the ‘cementeros’ has been due to their league leading offense with 14 goals and most importantly, by only receiving 2 goals after the first seven games. Cruz Azul has been great, especially considering the Clausura 2014 has been plagued by weak and uninteresting performances by the majority of the other Liga MX teams.
