Pumas UNAM vs Cruz Azul CONCACAF Champions League: Head to Head Records

These two clubs have met in the CONCACAF Champions League on 2 occasions and in those duels, the Universitarios have won on 1 occasion, and the Cementeros have also won in 1 match, and no draws have been recorded in this duel.

However, in Cruz Azul's visits to the Estadio Olímpico Universitario, if you analyze the numbers of their matches in all competitions, you can see that Pumas UNAM has not taken advantage of their home ground. 

This is due to the fact that of the 16 meetings that these clubs have had at the home of the Universitarios, the Cementeros have won on 11 occasions, to the Auriazules' 5 victories.

The Universitarios returned to winning ways in Round 12 of the Liga MX 2022, defeating the Bravos de Juárez 1-0, which places them in 9th place in this tournament.

However, in the CONCACAF Champions League, they are on a winning pace and after a spectacular comeback against the New England Revolution of the MLS, they are now on the verge of the final.

The problem for this club, however, is that Alek Álvarez, Jerónimo Rodríguez, Sebastián Saucedo, and Amaury García will not be available for the match against the Cementeros due to injuries.

Unlike the Auriazules, the Cementeros will have practically their entire squad and the only thing they are waiting for is for goalkeeper Jesús Corona to recover after overcoming the injury that kept him out of the field for the last few weeks.
