Clausura 2019 Week 7 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Cruz Azul vs Santos Laguna – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Cruz Azul (10th) drew 1-1 with Toluca last weekend to remain winless in two. They’ll look to get back on track when they return home to the Estadio Azteca, the scene of their last league victory, for this one. La Máquina has had some trouble scoring this season, though, with just four goals through six games and just one goal at home. On the other hand, they’re tied for the second-best defensive record in the league with only five goals allowed and three clean sheets. They’ll look to eke out another close win here.

As for Santos Laguna (9th), the Laguneros drew 1-1 with Tijuana last weekend to also remain winless in two. Santos is winless on the road as well, with two losses and a draw on their travels, and they’ll look to change that stat here. Like Cruz Azul, Santos hasn’t been all that prolific in front of goal, and they have yet to score more than one goal in a game. Changing that against Cruz Azul’s stingy defense might prove difficult.
