La Máquina arrived at Estadio Azteca with the intention of scoring at least one goal to have the game resolved in a penalty shootout, although a victory of two or more goals would have given them direct access to the final.

Cruz Azul lost the first leg of the semifinal of the CONCACAF Champions League 2-1, as Cristian Tabó, with his first goal of the season, kept La Máquina’s aspirations alive, but Juan Reynoso’s squad couldn’t find the net that Alfredo Talavera guarded on Tuesday night.

The result has already been catalogued as a failure, as Cruz Azulbuilt a squad to fight for both titles. Now, they must win Liga MX if Juan Reynoso wants to keep his job, as Jaime Ordiales is looking for an excuse to part ways with him.
