Cruz Azul and Atlético San Luis will face off today in the Estadio Azteca in the Round 16 of the Liga MX Guard1anes Tournament 2021. As the regular season is about to finish, 'La Máquina' will try to hold onto the first place ahead of the playoffs. Meanwhile, the visitors are in a much worse situation. Here, check out the match preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game in the US.
Juan Reynoso Guzmán's squad has a long unbeaten run under its belt after claiming a record 12 straight victories. Their unstoppable winning streak was over last weekend against Club América in the Clasico Joven, but they remain undefeated anyways.
On the other hand, Atlético San Luis fell apart in the tournament following a string of awful results. Guillermo Vázquez's boys were leapfrogged at the table and they find themselves at a very poor place. Even though their playoff hopes seem to be over, they would need a win to finish the tournament as strongly as possible.

Cruz Azul vs Atlético San Luis: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Cruz Azul's outstanding winning run came to an end in the 1-1 draw against América last weekend. The Cementeros managed to grab a late point, though, after the Aguilas took the lead in the first half. Despite they couldn't pick up their 13th consecutive triumph to make history, Reynoso's team has already proven how far it can go this year. With a playoff ticket already booked, the Máquina are close to securing the first spot on the table.
However, Atlético San Luis arrive in Mexico City after suffering a lot recently. The side coached by Vázquez has lost its last five league games and failed to win in the three previous rounds as well, heading to this match with an eight-game winless record.
These two have met many times before. They've played 16 games against each other, and Cruz Azul celebrated most of them as they won eleven times, while Atlético San Luis claimed the triumph in the other five games.
