Liga MX Betting - Cruz Azul Season Analysis
This 2020 for Cruz Azul is being perfect, the objectives are intact in the two tournaments they are playing, so the management of Robert Siboldi, although it is true that it started cloudy and complex, now lives in total harmony with the fans of the Cruz Azul.
Cruz Azul – Analysis Clausura 2020
Remember that Cruz Azul at the Apertura tournament had in their hands, the direct classification to the league, however, two defeats and a draw in the last five games brought to the ground any possibility that the team could have.
This clausura seems that the bad memories is forgotten, the results are the order of the day, six consecutive wins indicate that the team is hungry and thirsty for revenge, so Cruz Azul is a rival for the moment considered for the second round.
The keys to Cruz Azul Success
The previous season we talked and mentioned that Cruz Azul was an irregular team, that in major duels the team broke and that it couldn’t prove that it was for great things, having difficulties solving key games.
This Clausura the panorama is different. Despite starting the championship with two painful defeats against Atlas and Atlético San Luis both games 2-1.
After these two games the annoyance of the fans on the court was already heard and the departure of Siboldi and his coaching staff was requested immediately, to which the board of the Cruz Azul turned a deaf ear, having calm and cold mind, it seems that this now worked.
Now Cruz Azul has the most effective offensive in the championship, they already have 24 goals in 10 games played, if we compare it to the previous Apertura, Cruz Azul scored 25 times in the 18 games it played, which is undoubtedly a sample of improvement, where they are one goal away from improving what was done in the Apertura and they still have 7 matches left.
One of the keys to this football improvement is the player Jonathan Rodríguez who in this championship has been intractable, his good performance has him as the current top scorer of the championship with nine goals, contributing 38% of the teams goals in the tournament.
His defensive has shown changes in each day, where at least the coach has made a modification in some of the positions, being Paul Aguilar and Josué Misael Domínguez who have been in 70% of the games this Clausura.
After the break that Liga MX will have for the prevention of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Cruz Azul is the lonely leader, already on the way they won against weighty rivals, the road seems to be with the only route to leadership at the end the qualifying stage.
The Road of Cruz Azul
The path that the team must take to close the regular season seems to be not so easy and will put the team to the test for a possible classification in the league.
7 games remain, with a total of 21 points to dispute, the magic number today is 35 points that would give the classification to the team, this number would be modified day by day since in the process teams key points will be subtracted for the final countdown.
These 13 remaining points for Cruz Azul (potential for the classification) must be disputed before: Puebla tenth of the general, Pumas that is sixth, León second in the general, Querétaro that is twelfth, Monterrey last of the closure and will close with Necaxa in Aguascalientes .
Of these games the Cruz Azul needs to win three of four of these games and draw one, the rivals are not easy at all, four teams from the seven rivals are fully involved in a place in the league, but Cruz Azul is showing great soccer this tournament.
Cruz Azul have already won against: Santos Laguna, Pachuca, Chivas, Tigres, Monarcas, Tijuana and América, tied with Toluca and lost against Atlas and Atlético San Luis, their performance at the moment is 73% effectiveness, scored 24 goals in his favor for an average of 2.4 games goals per game, while he has received 14, for a total of 1.4 goals per game.
Chances and Lack of Championships
Cruz Azul has everything in their favor to classify, to think that this time the team will be out of the Liguilla right now is unthinkable, their possibilities are high as they have a 90% chance of accessing the round of 16.
Regarding the issue of the possibilities to reach the Mexican championship, the Liga MX betting lines take into account the difficulty that the team has had to achieve this objective.
Since 1997 the Cruz Azul does not know what it is to be the Liga MX champion. At that time, he obtained this title after 17 years of drought.
For this Clausura the team already has 23 years of waiting to lift the league cup, which makes this factor one of the aspects to be valued when assigning a chance to get the title of this tournament. Odds to Win Liga MX.
