Apertura 2018 Week 8 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Cruz Azul vs Veracruz – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Cruz Azul (1st) drew 1-1 with Santos Laguna last weekend to end a two-game winning streak but keep them unbeaten this season. They suffered their first loss in all competitions in midweek, though, where they fell 1-0 to Atlas in the Copa MX. La Máquina will look to remain unbeaten in league play – and remain in first place – with a victory against a struggling Veracruz side in this one. Cruz Azul has the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just two goals through seven games, and they have yet to allow a single goal at home.

As for Veracruz (15th), the Tiburones Rojos beat Tijuana 1-0 last weekend to end a two-game losing streak. They’ve struggled to score this season though, with just five goals total and just two on the road, which doesn’t bode well for them going up against the league’s best defense. Veracruz’s own defensive record is the worst in the league with 13 goals allowed, but they’ll try hope to surprise what may well be an over-confidant Cruz Azul side here.
