In a decisive Copa MX semifinal where the winner will reach the grand finale, Cruz Azul will host Necaxa at the Estadio Azul this Wednesday, April 5, 2016 at 6:00 PM Pacific. The ‘cementeros’ have been the team with the best record thus far into the competition, and are highly favored to defeat their Ascenso MX visitors.
Coach Tomas Boy has turned things into positives since taking over at Cruz Azul as in the Liga MX they currently sit in 4th place with 19 points, and in the Copa MX they had the best record of the group stages with 16 points. Add their win in the quarterfinals, and Cruz Azul has indicated that winning the Copa MX is a top goal for the Mexico City side.
Meanwhile, Necaxa enter the match as the underdog because they face the current best performer in the competition, because they face the home side, and because they encounter a team in a higher division with a much more talented roster. Nonetheless, Necaxa will use their history to fulfill a surprising victory at the Estadio Azul.
The winner of this game will face the winner between Veracruz and Atletico San Luis.
The Cruz Azul vs Necaxa Copa MX semifinal will be televised on Univision Deportes at 5:50 PM Pacific.
