It's time for the elimination rounds in Liga MX Apertura 2022. Cruz Azul will host Leon with a spot for the Quarterfinals on the line and here is all the information you need to know including the date, time and TV Channel to watch. This highly anticipated matchup in the Liguilla playoffs will be available to see on fuboTV (Free Trial) for the US. 

Cruz Azul have lived a rollercoaster this tournament. A 7-0 humiliation against archrival Club America, the firing of manager Diego Aguirre, the arrival of an interim coach such as Raul Gutierrez, the possibility to advance directly to the Quarterfinals and, in the end, La Maquina will have to face the playoff known as Repechaje. Considering the crisis at the beginning of the season, only two wins after ten matches, many fans would have signed this scenario. All or nothing in one game. 

On the other side, Leon has been a disappointment under manager Renato Paiva but, amazingly, they're still alive in the hunt for the championship. A few weeks ago, on Matchday 16 of Liga MX Apertura 2022, Leon visited Cruz Azul and lost 2-1 with a spectacular comeback from La Maquina scoring goals on minutes 82' and 90+2' to secure the victory.
