The Blue Cross faces the Monarchs at the beginning of the 17th
Five teams will compete for the last three tickets to be defined for the league title for the Liga MX Apertura tournament, which will take place at the latest of its regular calendar.
After 16 meetings, Cruz Azul, América, Pumas, Santos and Monterrey have their place safe for the final phase that begins next week. Tigres, Toluca, Morelia, Pachuca and Querétaro are the five in their lives.
Morelia, the eighth with 25 points, is the owner of his destiny and will advance to the league if he defeats Cruz Azul leader tonight in the first match of this day.
Tigres and Toluca also control their course. Both would qualify if they would draw.
The car, which qualifies for a few weeks, marks the 33-point step, and a tie is enough to tie the first place, allowing you to close all the games at home.
Cruz Azul could lose the top in defeat and América beat Veracruz on Sunday at Nemesio Diez stadium in Toluca, which will be his alternative home, while the injured Aztec court receives special treatment to be used in the league .
Although he has the power to classify the league as the leader of the competition, the Portuguese Pedro Caixinha says they are not obsessed with finishing first.
"In this club there is no obsession, there is nothing, an illusion, a great illusion to meet the commitments and challenges we have from the beginning. We offer a lot of courage to get here," said the Portuguese in a press conference.
The European was presented with a clear joy in front of him and in his words, saying that "we know that we spent 70% of the tournament in the first position and we only depend on the first place (classification)."
The car visits Morelia at the end of the regular season of the Liga MX8 Opening tournament and must win to embody an extraordinary campaign that has never been seen in the latest tournaments.
The strategist wants a victory of the campaign because the tie is not enough and the institution has the habit of triumphing. "With that illusion and ambition to win, we want to finish first."
Then he reiterated several positions: "Do not obsess us or intimidate what the super-leader's superstition says. For us, nothing else proves that we are the most regular team."
The superlider's curse refers to the fact that in most of the time whoever goes to the head is not the champion of the contest.
Regarding the precarious condition of the Azteca stadium, he explained that if he played the Saturday match of 24, the team will recognize the surface.
