Cruz Azul vs Leon Prediction & Match Preview

Cruz Azul vs Leon
Mexico – Liga MX Guard1anes
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Azteca.

The Green Bellies had been one of the best teams in the whole competition the last season, and they had finished as runners-up of the league. However, they have failed a bit in sustaining that form, and are mildly struggling at the moment.

However, La Maquina have been on an impressive run lately, and are determined to qualify to the quarters of the playoffs.

They do have the confidence that they are at home, where they have managed to deliver impressive performances, while their counterparts have failed to do well on the road.

By the looks of things, expect a winning performance from Cruz Azul this Sunday.
