This Monday, July 17, 2017 (6:55 PM Pacific) Cruz Azul will host FC Porto at the Estadio Azul for a friendly match. Both teams always loom to fight for the title in their respective leagues and should provide an interesting encounter in Mexico City.
Cruz Azul had a very disappointing Clausura 2017 campaign, finishing eleventh with 21 points. Manager Paco Jemez did make a noticeable impact on the way that Cruz Azul plays but was unable to get favorable results. The Spaniard has solidified La Maquina this offseason with some stellar signings like the Chilean striker, Felipe Mora and the Spanish forward, Edgar Mendez. This game will serve as a huge test for Paco Jemez and Cruz Azul heading into the Apertura 2017 and should be an intriguing duel.
FC Porto had a solid Primeira Liga 16-17 season, finishing in second just behind rivals Benfica. Porto will look to be champions this season but will have to add some players in the stack with the departure of Andre Silva to AC Milan. Some of the more notable players to watch will be the Mexican trio comprised of Jesus Corona, Hector Herrera and Miguel Layun. The game should be a contested clash and it will be very interesting to see how Cruz Azul fares against a team that consistently makes the Champions League.
