Why is it in Cruz Azul's best interest for the Zorros to win in the Atlas vs Pachuca duel? This question has been driving Cementeros fans crazy in the last few hours and doubts have flooded the social networks.
More news about Cruz Azul:
After being eliminated by Tigres in the Liguilla, Cementeros fans thought that their team would not see action until the preseason matches after the end of the tournament, however, something they did not expect could happen.
Especially after the loss of their former coach, Juán Reynoso, who was fired from the team for allegedly making unacceptable economic demands and maintaining a terrible relationship with several of his players.
For this reason, the revelations made by several Mexican media, especially TV Azteca, have filled with joy the fans of La Máquina, which could end this tournament with a title in its hands.
For this reason, it is in Cruz Azul's best interest for the Zorros to win in the Atlas vs Pachuca duel
According to David Medrano, a reporter for TV Azteca, Liga MX regulations state that Cruz Azul could play for the title of Champion of Champions if Atlas beats Pachuca in the Liga MX final.
According to what the reporter points out in his column in the newspaper Récord, if a team repeats the championship, the team chosen to play the Champion of Champions Final will be the Champion in turn of that duel, so Cruz Azul would be the chosen one since last year they beat León in that, However, if Pachuca wins the grand final of the Clausura 2022 Tournament, they will have to face Atlas again to define this year's Champion of Champions.
In this way, the Cementeros could obtain the ticket to dispute a title they were not expecting, and in this way, they could give a reward to their fans who during the Clausura 2022 Tournament did not fail to support them in all their matches.
Atlas would have to be a two-time champion for Cruz Azul to be able to play for the Champion of Champions
If Atlas achieves the championship once again, not only would they play the Champions of Champions against Cruz Azul, but they would also join the select group of teams that have achieved this feat since the beginning of the short tournaments in Liga MX.
A feat that has only been achieved by two clubs: Hugo Sánchez's historic Pumas in 2004 and León in 2013-14. These teams achieved the feat of winning the title on two consecutive occasions.
Atlas is on the verge of achieving it, but first, they will have to face Guillermo Almada's Pachuca, who has performed brilliantly throughout the tournament.
Not in vain did they annihilate Club America in the semifinal with a 4-1 aggregate score, so Diego Cocca's squad will not only face scorers of the stature of Nicolás Ibáñez, but also a team that knows perfectly how to resist counterattacks, a move with which the Zorros have gone far in the Clausura 2022 Tournament.
