Cruz Azul will host the Tuzos del Pachuca for matchday 7 of the Grita México Apertura 2021 Liga MX tournament, just after the All-Star Game and before the September FIFA date. In the last double-header, Cruz Azul obtained five points out of a possible nine, after drawing against Rayados and Atlético de San Luis, and only defeating Toluca on matchday 4.
The good news is that in the match between Cruz Azul and Pachuca, on paper, there will be four fewer absentees. Adrián Aldrete is training with his teammates and will be medically cleared, Ignacio Rivero will have already paid his suspension and both Orbelín Pineda and Luis Romo will have returned from the vacation given to them by the TC. Only two players will be absent: José de Jesús Corona and Luis Ángel Mendoza.

The Champion's Curse
From the start of the tournament, it was a surprise that they lost 2-0 at home to Mazatlan. Although it is true that they did not have a starting team, the Cañoneros still won on the scoreboard and on the field. In the second game, they came away from Torreón with a bittersweet 1-1 draw.
he first victory for La Máquina came on matchday 4, when they beat Rayos del Necaxa 2-1; on the following matchday, they gave a master class and overcame the then tournament leader, Diablos Rojos del Toluca, 4-0. Everything seemed to indicate that the champion had woken up and everything would change; however, this was not the case, and the numbers were once again mixed.
