Face to face
In the last five games played between the two teams, the Pedregal team has the advantage, with three wins over the Cementeros. Four of these results are from Liga MX clashes, the remaining one corresponds to the first leg of the same series.
Sebastián Jurado arrived at the Azul’s bench thinking he would be the natural successor of Jesús Corona, however, given the good performance of the veteran, Jurado has not had the minutes he was expected to play, which has been reflected in his unlucky performances. Today is a great opportunity to reverse the criticism from the fans towards the Veracruz native.
Mario Escobar will be the referee in charge of supervising the match as a center referee, the Guatemalan is known for a controversy in which he had words with people in the stands while refereeing a local league match. He has been an international referee since 2013.

Cruz Azul key player
Cruz Azul losses
Cruz Azul has some important absentees for this Tuesday’s match, although during the press conference Juan Reynoso did not rule out Jesús Corona from taking the field tonight, everything indicates that the goalkeeper is still not at 100% and it will be Sebastián Jurado who will continue to take his place; if so, it would be a litmus test for the Veracruz native, as his recent performances have been criticized for almost childish mistakes. In addition, Juan Escobar will be absent due to rib discomfort after a collision with Jurado and Ángel Romero will be absent due to a muscular issue. Charly’ Rodríguez is the saddest news for the Cementeros, as after medical studies it was determined that he will miss the rest of the tournament due to a fractured tibia.
In the CONCACAF Champions League, their first test was against Saprissa, whom they defeated 6-3 on aggregate, and then New England complicated the universitarios in the quarterfinals, tying 3-3 and defining the result in penalties with a 4-3 score. Now, they have the advantage to eliminate the Celestes at the Azteca stadium.
