At time of writing, plenty can happen between now and Sunday afternoon.
On the final day of Liga MX’ regular season, both Pumas and Cruz Azul may already know what their fates will be in this season’s playoff race.
For Pumas, they may be out of the running entirely. The good news is that it’s unlikely, but statistically speaking, a top 12 position may be out of reach by Sunday.
As for Cruz Azul, they luckily already have a place in the postseason.
By the end of the weekend, what will matter most is where they finish within that top 12 of the league standings.
Pumas have the home field advantage and more of the impetus to claim three points, but sadly for them, it seems difficult to assume that they can surpass Cruz Azul.
Cruz Azul have reason to feel assured for their final game of the regular season.
Pick Cruz Azul for the win. (+140)
Sunday will define who is in and who is out of the 2021 Apertura playoffs.
In Week 17 of the Liga MX season, plenty of spots remain up for grabs in the race towards the coveted Mexican top-flight championship.
Cruz Azul, who are the current title-holders, have already secured their place into the next round.
No matter the outcome of Sunday’s match, they’ll be fighting for another consecutive title within 2021.
Can they surpass Pumas who will be desperate for three points?
Pumas have more to lose this weekend, but that said, they might be tired heading into Sunday after a grueling end to their regular season.
Thursday’s result against Santos Laguna was the last thing that Pumas needed.
In their first of two games in four days, Pumas stumbled to a 3-0 loss. By the 64th minute, they had already allowed all three of Santos’ goals.
Upfront, they were stopped time after time by Santos’ Carlos Acevedo in net.
This will undoubtedly be a serious gut punch to their morale, and with a quick turnaround before Sunday, Pumas’ young roster will expectedly be lacking some energy this weekend.
Cruz Azul might not be firing on all cylinders just yet like last season, but at the very least, manager Juan Reynoso has once again tightened up his backline.
The current title-holders have only allowed 13 goals in 16 matches, and in their last six games, they’ve only allowed four.
It has been brilliant to watch.
Pumas — who are currently one of the worst attacking clubs in Liga MX — will not stand much of a chance against Reynoso’s strong defense.
We can’t overlook Cruz Azul’s clutch player.
Up top, Jonathan “Cabecita” Rodriguez is arguably the best-attacking name in all of Liga MX.
Aggressive, quick, and also surprisingly strong, the Uruguayan is a well-rounded threat that can create headaches for nearly every defender in the league.
And after recovering from an injury, Rodriguez seems to be regaining some of his mojo.
The forward has two goals in his last two games and is unlucky to not have an assist to tack on to those scoring opportunities as well.
He’s finding his momentum at the perfect moment, and up against Pumas, he’s set to steal the show and the spotlight in Cruz Azul’s final match of the regular season.
