Atlas is the best defense of the tournament
The cement manufacturers will not have it easy at all, since the Red and black They have been the sensation of the championship by being in second place and they are also the best defense, having allowed only six goals in 13 rounds, three of them in home condition.
This speaks of the good work that the defense led by the Peruvian have done Anderson Santamaria, the Argentinian Hugo Nervo and Jesus Angulo, without neglecting the great Colombian guardian Camilo Vargas.
Jonathan Rodríguez is still unable to score
Last tournament, the Uruguayan was the best third scorer with nine goals and is by far the team’s top scorer at the moment, Santiago Gimenez with four.
Between injuries, friendly duels and other tournaments, as well as calls with the selection of Uruguay, El Cabecita has not had a good time and so far he has only one goal in the championship, which he achieved on the already distant Date 4 against Striped.
If your scorer is not doing well, the team will hardly be able to succeed in duels, therefore, The Cabezón He must be concerned that his ward does not find the compass and regain confidence for the closing of the tournament, as he is a man of vital importance in the scheme.
Continue to owe as a visitor
As a visitor, the celestial have only added two wins, which does not seem unreasonable if they were against two tables that are in the lower part of the table as Necaxa (15) and Xolos (18).
Outside of that, they have three draws and one loss, so it is not a good prognosis when you go to visit The academy at home, where he is strong and where his defense has been the most outstanding.
Reynoso aims to get into the top four to have a direct pass to the League, but if he did not do so, he would play repechage, so by all means he will try to avoid that the games are away from home and if not, he has to start now to impose conditions on other people’s courts.
An arbitration that does not harm again
During the match against Tigers, there was controversy in the last minutes, because at 84 ‘ Hugo Ayala He played an aerial ball with the Ecuadorian Brayan Angulo, where the feline elbowed the cement, which must have been a clear penalty.
However, the hissing Jorge Pérez Duran did not want to review the action in the VAR, resuming everything and taking the opportunity to Blue Cross to be able to go to the front with a possible criminal.
Being visitors, Reynoso he will be waiting for it to not be a local arbitration that affects his aspirations to score points.
A hypothetical defeat that takes them away from direct Liguilla
Machine Seventh place in the classification and to aspire to the two-time championship of MX League he must win yes or yes, because if several results are crossed, he could climb to fourth position, with which, they would have the right to enter the Big Party directly.
However, falling in front of Atlas, things would start to get ugly for the cement producers, since there are several teams stalking them closely and that could even take them out of the repechage.
Just one point below the picture of La Noria are Athletic San Luis, Chivas and Mazatlan, in addition to two is Santos Laguna already three Pachuca (last with ticket to repechage), Puebla and Juarez. This is a pressure that must be penetrating strongly in the group, which will have a difficult closure against Chivas, America, Lion and Cougars.
