As in the midweek match against Gallos Blancos, the Uruguayan Christian Tabo he was the most outstanding element in attack, generating and culminating plays in front of the potosina goal, although without any success.
For their part, the rojiblancos remained expectant and controlled the sky blue in the background. However, when the first half was ending, André Jardine’s squad surprised the Machine with a great goal from Ricardo Chavezwho received a deep ball and dodged Sebastián Jurado’s exit to calmly finish off in added time.
After the break, Cruz Azul made changes to the eleven to opt for a more offensive stance, but it is a reality that the group of John Reynoso not find your best level.
Uriel Antuna became the protagonist in the second half, overflowing again and again down the right flank, but the skillful striker was not fine when placing the ball in the area and his individual plays were losing weight.
