This is the final call for Pumas UNAM. After a miraculous 2-2 draw in Toluca, thanks to a last second score from goalkeeper Julio Gonzalez, Andres Lillini’s team has to win its three remaining games and the first step is against a classic rival like Cruz Azul. Pumas are on the verge of becoming one of the biggest disappointments in Mexico, after signing superstars like Dani Alves, Eduardo ‘Toto’ Salvio and Gustavo del Prete.
After everything that happened during this season, Cruz Azul unbelievably control their destiny to be in the finals. La Maquina lost 7-0 against archrival Club America, fired their manager of the future (Diego Aguirre) and signed and interim coach like Raul Gutierrez who didn’t have any experience in Mexico’s First Division. Still, last Thursday’s win against Leon at home put them in the driver’s seat to clinch a spot in the Liguilla. With 18 points in the 11th place of the table, Cruz Azul just needs to beat Pumas and Chivas in their final games to be in.
