Yes, Santos Laguna have the head-to-head advantage in the last five games, but this season’s display led us to believe that our Santos Laguna vs Cruz Azul predictions might succeed despite the history between the two sides.

Santos Laguna team news and form: Shacky behavior from Laguneros

With two back-to-back victories in Liga MX, you could make the case that Laguneros are on the rise recently. However, we believe that Harold Preciado’s presence on the pitch at Estadio Corona won’t be enough to ruin our Santos Laguna vs Cruz Azul predictions.

Predicted lineup: Lopez (GK), Doria, Amione, Rodriguez, Govea, Cervantes, Medina, Aquino, Mata, Preciado & Ocejo

Cruz Azul team news and form: Cruz Azul performing admirably

Cruz Azul, Monterrey, and Pachuca are joint-top in Liga MX, with 22 points each. We are sure that with Uril Antuna among the starters, coach Anselmi can’t lose the game against Santos Laguna this week. After all, Antuna bagged a brace in last week’s match against Guadalajara.

Predicted lineup: Mier (GK), Rivero, Faravelli, Lira, Piovi, Huescas, Rodriguez, Rotondi, Antuna, Gutierrez & Sepulveda

Player to watch: Harold Preciado

Preciado among the best finishers in Liga MX

Yes, Preciado is back, and with that in mind, we have to acknowledge that Santos Laguna started picking up points again. Harold Preciado is the top goalscorer in the league right now, with 12 goals scored.
