The Cruz Azul vs Toluca Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, March 1, 2014 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azul. Cementeros and Diablos Rojos face-off in what is undeniably the best game of this Week 9 of the Clausura 2014, and even possibly the best thus far into the season. Both sides have had an extremely successful campaign, and this game could dictate which team is the best so far into the season.
Cruz Azul goes into this Week 9 match as the best team of the league with an undefeated record, plus an amazing 7 wins and only 1 tie. Those 22 points have been met by having the best defense in the tournament with only 3 goals allowed, and also the best offense with 17 goals scored. The numbers attained by the team coached by Luis Fernando Tena have without a doubt been excellent, but this weekend they will face their biggest test when they host Toluca who has been almost as successful.
The team coached by Jose Saturdino Cardoso is in 2nd place with 19 points, just three behind Cruz Azul. Toluca has the second best offense with 13 goals, and second best defense with 4 goals allowed, and this Saturday they will attempt to tie their opponents in points with the win. The Diablos are currently on a three game winning streak, and while winning at the Azul will be difficult, they will want to demonstrate that they are in fact the best in the league.
