Cruz Azul is not in good shape for the playoffs for a place in the Liguilla of the Clausura 2022. 'La Máquina Cementera' has "broken down" in attack, scoring just one goal in its last five games.

Including the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals against Pumas, the Celestes have only scored one goal, and that was against Gallos Blancos, scored by defender Pablo Aguilar.
Furthermore, in Liga MX matches against Guadalajara, Atlético de San Luis and América in the last round, their forwards did not score a goal.
As if that were not enough, Cruz Azul has won one of its seven most recent matches, a victory over Querétaro.
Cruz Azul's top scorer is a defender
Cruz Azul's best goal scorer in the Clausura 2022 is defender Juan Escobar with four goals, followed by Santiago Giménez with three.
Coach Juan Reynoso has had to improvise lineups day after day to give the team more depth, but this has not solved the problems of the Cementero team, which is becoming weaker and weaker in attack in each match.
While awaiting a playoff opponent, La Máquina will have to solve its lack of goals as soon as possible, if it does not want to suffer another failure in the first half of 2022.
