The Veracruz vs Cruz Azul Liga MX will be played this Friday, April 22, 2016 (7:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuente in Veracruz. While the ‘tiburones rojos’ have absolutely nothing to play for other than to please their home fans, the ‘cementeros’ must win to remain with a good opportunity to reach the playoffs.
Veracruz has been an complete disaster in this Liga MX semester where they have only won 1, tied 7, and lost 6; 17th place in the standings. The only joy Veracruz has gained is winning the Copa MX two weeks ago against Necaxa which will give them an opporunity to play in next year’s Copa Libertadores if they defeat Chivas of Guadalajara in a wild car playoff.
Cruz Azul will enter the Pirata Fuentes under great nerve as they must win to remain in ‘liguilla’ contention. The team coached by Tomas Boy is emerged in a negative streak in which they have not won their last three matches. After 14 games, they sit just under a playoff seed in 9th place with 19 points; a win against the weak Veracruz could potentially place them within the top eight.
