The Cementeros are having an amazing season in Liga MX, ruling in the standings and holding an unbelievable winning streak, which makes them look unstoppable. However, Juan Reynoso Guzmán's squad couldn't carry that level to the Concachampions yet.
Arcahaie managed to finish the first leg tied, which allows them to visit Estadio Azteca with plenty of hope as the aggregate score is still level.

Cruz Azul vs Arcahaie FC: Storylines
La Máquina are going through one of their best seasons in history. They are being dominant in the Mexican league, where they stand at the top of the standings. Cruz Azul have won twelve games in a row so far, a breathtaking record that places them as the main title contender. That should be enough to see them as a candidate for the Concachampions as well.
However, their first game in the regional competition wasn't impressive at all. Instead, a goalless draw in the first leg against the modest Arcahaie surprised everyone. The Haitian team, although it reached the final of the local tournament a couple of months ago and the CONCACAF League semi-finals as well, wasn't expected to resist Cruz Azul's strength.
But the Cementeros were far from their best and returned home without any advantage. Still, they went on to keep on winning in the league and recorded their 12th successive triumph. Will they carry this time their Liga MX level to the CONCACAF's greatest competition?
