In a Liga MX Clausura 2017 match corresponding to the postponed ‘jornada’ 10, Toluca will host Cruz Azul at the Estadio Nemesio Diez this Thursday, April 13, 2017 (7:00 PM Pacific). This could be a great spectacle considering the prestige of both clubs, yet the ‘diablos rojos’ are clear favorites due to the visitor’s painfully disastrous season.
Toluca has been outstanding this season, sitting in first place after 12 games played even after all other teams (except Cruz Azul) have played their corresponding Week 10 matches. The team coached by Hernan Cristante has earned 25 points after 8 wins, 1 tie, and 3 losses and will hold onto their leading positioning regardless of the score this Thursday. Their good form can be attributed not necessarily to their offense which has scored 17 goals and which has been hurt by suspensions to Rubens Sambueza and Enrique Triverio, but more-so due to their defense which has only allowed 11 goals.
Cruz Azul has been a total disaster this season, having only earned 11 points after 12 games, and demonstrating that the Paco Jemez experiment was an expensive and total failure. The ‘cementeros’ could win their remaining five games and still be out of playoff contention; and considering they visit the tournament’s top team, it is likely that they will be eliminated from any ‘liguilla’ possibilities this Thursday night.
