After the irregular second half of the season that Cruz Azul had, where they won only one of the last 10 games that they played both in Clausura 2022 and CONCACAF Champions League, La Máquina was able to make it into Liguilla after defeating Club Necaxa on a penalty shootout.

Although La Máquina were able to open the scoresheet after 56 minutes thanks to a goal scored by Juan Escobar, Los Rayos equalize the game with just two minutes before the regular time ended, goal that send the game to the penalty shootout where Sebastián Jurado was the hero for Cruz Azul.

Now that they have ensured their presence in Liguilla, Los Cementeros will have to beat Tigres, who finished the regular season standing second, if they want to make it into the semifinals and keep alive the hopes of Juan Reynoso to remain as their coach.

Since the arrival of Jaime Ordiales in La Máquina toreplace Álvaro Dávila as sporting director of Cruz Azul, he’s been trying to find an excuse to part ways with Reynoso, which is why he requested that Los Cementeros win a title in the first semester of the year to keep him on the dugouot.

Ordiales has been looking for his successor

Jaime Ordiales hasn’t lost time and after the failure that Cruz Azul had in the CONCACAF Champions League, where they were eliminated by Pumas in the semifinals, he’s been looking for candidates to replace Reynoso once Clausura 2022 is over.

During the broadcasting of the Repechaje game between Club Puebla and Mazatán FC, it was revealed that Cruz Azul has found in Nicolás Larcamón the perfect replacement for Reynoso, as the Puebla coach has helped La Franja reach three straight finals.

The limited roster that Club Puebla have, and that hasn’t been a restriction for Larcamón to succeed in Liga MX is all the prove that Ordiales needs to pursue his singing, given that in La Máquina, Larcamón will have a bigger roster and more possibilities of transcending.

How much will Cruz Azul have to pay for him?

Although Ordiales has also looked into the possibilities of signing Hugo Sánchez or Ricardo Ferretti, what makes Larcamón a more attractive offer is his low salary, as he would receive a $700,000 per season salary, added to the $900,000 release clause that his contract has.
