This match will probably cause the fans in the stands to make their rejection of this player, who at the time arrived as a great promise but never consolidated.

The player Cruz Azul could meet again in their match against Tigres

The player with whom the Cementeros could be reunited is none other than Igor Lichnovsky, the Chilean defender who arrived as a star at Cruz Azul but never established himself at the club.

What's worse is that the Chilean has also failed to establish himself with Tigres, where he arrived to supposedly replace Carlos Salcedo, who left to play in the MLS for Toronto FC. 

Therefore, the reunion with the former Cementero player is a great possibility, as long as Miguel Herrera gets him to play, although this is a bit difficult since, as mentioned before, he is still not a starter.

Of the 17 matches that Tigres played in the entire tournament, Lichnovsky only played in 7, very little for the amount the Felinos paid for his contract, which is valued at 3 million euros according to the Transfermarkt portal. 

Why did Igor Lichnovsky leave Cruz Azul through the back door?

The player's situation at the club was complicated, as he was not finding the prominence he was looking for, so he decided to leave at a very complicated time for the club, when everyone in the team had to show unity.

What happened was that in the 2020-2021 season, exactly halfway through the Guardianes 2020 Tournament, La Máquina was playing for everything in that semester and, overnight Lichnovsky decided to leave for Saudi Arabia to play in the Saudi Professional League.

The player received an offer from the club Al-Shabab, so he decided to leave his club when he needed him the most also, he left without previous payment of his rescission clause. 

As a result, a large part of La Maquina's fans do not look favorably on the player and if he is on the field for Thursday's game, Cementeros fans will most likely remind the player how much they hate him. 

This Thursday will be a great opportunity for Juán Reynoso's Cruz Azul to win the first leg, as they will be playing at the Azteca Stadium and with the support of their fans, which could be a factor.

They also need to try to win the match, as Miguel Herrera's Felinos have only lost one home match in the entire tournament, and that defeat was against Club América, with a score of 0-2.
