Cruz Azul to win twice 

Cruz Azul looks sharper than ever for this game. The home side won in the difficult away game against Forge in Canada and won with a 1:4 away result against the very well-performing team of Toluca in Liga MX. The team is in the 3rd position currently and will be looking to advance in the CONCACAF Champions League as well. An early goal against Forge and a 2:0 end victory shouldn’t be a surprise. 

Both Teams to Score – No 

The result from the first game was a 0:1 for Cruz Azul. Forge didn’t score a goal. The chances for Forge to score in Mexico will be even fewer. Cruz Azul was the superior team in the first game and the statistics can confirm that. The home team had only 5 shots and only 40 % possession on the ball. 

Squad details for the upcoming game 

This will be an injury and suspension-free game so we expect a good display from the two sides. 

Cruz Azul’s lineup 

The home side will be able to count not only on the best 11 men for the job but also the home crowd advantage! Santiago Jimenez scored twice against Toluca and will look to further capitalize on that. Nicolas Lopez on the other hand is currently 4th in the goal-scoring charts in Liga MX and is the key attacking player for the team. 

Forge’s lineup 

Triston Henry did not perform well against Cruz Azul in the first game. He allowed an easy goal and we expect him to perform even poorer under the pressure of the away game. Terran Campbell in attack didn’t get much of the ball and Forge didn’t have a single shot on target in the first game.
