The last time Cruz Azul had strategist Miguel Herrera as an opponent in the final leg, the Clausura was in 2019, this time with the best-ranked La Noria club, although they lost 3-1 in the first leg And although they won 1-0 the comeback stage was eliminated.

This will be the fifth time Piezo will direct a league match against a cement team – Tigress’s first as technical director. The deputy leader later practiced at a higher intensity so that his players would not come out after a week’s break.
