Juarez vs Cruz Azul Lineups & Team News

Juarez

Los Bravos had a decent Apertura campaign, but they remain underdogs in our Juarez vs Cruz Azul predictions for many reasons. First of all, they never perform well against Cruz Azul. Second of all, Juarez lost their opening Clausura match against Pumas UNAM, despite the fact that the home side at Estadio Universitario played without Natan for 15 minutes.

Predicted lineup – Jurado (GK), Vukcevic, Ortiz, Garcia, Abella, Vergara, Garcia, Hurtado, Garcia, Chavez & Escoto

Cruz Azul

Sure, Cruz Azul also lost their first match of the campaign, but the 0-1 loss against Pachuca was surely an underserved result. After all, Cruz Azul had 60.0% possession at Estadio Azteca and more possession than their rivals. Coach Martin Anselmi’s boys deserved to get something out of this match, but we are sure that there will be justice when our Juarez vs Cruz Azul predictions succeed.

Predicted lineup – Mier (GK), Rivero, Ditta, Piovi, Vargas, Lira, Antuna, Rodriguez, Faravelli, Rotondi & Fernandez

Player to Watch: Kevin Mier

A decent shot-stopper is vital for any club. And Kevin Mier is among the best ones in Liga MX. He proved that in the match against Pachuca last week. Sure, Cruz Azul still lost 0-1, but the result could’ve been humiliating if it wasn’t for Kevin’s fantastic reflexes.

Kevin Mier managed to make five saves, which were enough to give Cruz Azul a fighting chance until the last second on the clock. We are sure that he will be on top of his game this week as well, proving our Juarez vs Cruz Azul predictions correct.
