Mexico City- The devil appeared to Cruz Azul, who broke his undefeated 15-game winning streak in the Guardians of the MX League in 2021.
The Robots defeated Toluca (Toluca) and Liguilla (Liguilla) 2-1. As a result, they entered the first leg of the quarter-finals, which was held today at the Nemesio Diez Stadium. .
Coach Juan Reynoso left Jonathan Rodríguez and Orbelín Pineda on the bench and surprised everyone. The Red Devils committed against the cement team Two fines were imposed, but neither of the referees reviewed them in VAR.
Alexis Canelo opened the goal with a 26-point advantage after taking advantage of a foul in the area. At the time he wanted to shoot, but Juan Escobar lowered Scored.
When Guillermo “Pol” Fernández (Guillermo “Pol” Fernández) crossed the ball, the cement team had reacted and it was equal to 33 feet and had stepped into the area.
By then, Toluca had lost the starting left wing Diego Rigonato due to injury after receiving Luis Romo’s elbow at 12′.
To supplement this, Reynoso had no moving chips. When Roberto Alvarado contacted Rubens Sambueza in the area, the Red Devils once again found the greatest punishment. That is 49 feet, this action lacks elements to be marked as punishment. Again, Ortiz did not consult the display.
Michael Estrada was once again responsible for defeating Jesús Corona, who defeated his left side in both shots.
Then, Reynoso stopped to bear it and sent “Cabizita” and Pineda, who gave his life back to the cement attack.
At 59′ time, Rodriguez’s shot was well covered by goalkeeper Luis García, and six minutes later he flew to cover Escobar’s header.
It wasn’t until 72 minutes ago that Bryan Angulo wasted the most obvious distance to get the tie because he didn’t push Alvarado after putting a hat on Raúl López. (Alvarado) left the center he served.
If goalkeeper Jesús Corona didn’t touch Alexis Canelo’s dangerous low center and “finger” López arrived without leaving any traces in 84 minutes, then the heavenly defeat could be even worse.
Since the second day of the Guardian on January 16, the machine has not lost in Liga MX; and has linked 19 undefeated games, including 4 games of Concachampions.
Now, Cruz Azul must win at least 1-0 at the Azteca Stadium on Saturday, as the draw will give Toluca a semi-final ticket.
