Cruz Azul will receive Tigres this Saturday, February 4, in a match valid for the fifth day of the Closing Tournament of Liga MXin what will undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated games of the date.
Los Tigres come from a goalless draw against Atlético San Luis, while Cruz Azul did not play due to the suspension of the match against Querétaro FC. However, La Máquina played a friendly against Atlante that was equalized by two goals and with a stellar performance by Chilean Iván Morales.
History between Cruz Azul and Tigres
The last five meetings between Cruz Azul and Tigres slightly favor La Máquina with two wins, plus one win for Tigres and two draws.
Tigres is entrenched in the championship after achieving important signings like that of Nicolás Ibáñez and this week ended up closing the incorporation of Diego Lainez. In addition, the university students announced the two-year renewal of their star André-Pierre Gignac.
In case, the Cruz Azul market has only brought frustration due to the non-incorporation of Luis Suárez and Radamel Falcao; the Uruguayan preferred to go to Gremio while the Colombian stayed at Rayo Vallecano.

The 11 chosen by Raúl Gutiérrez for Cruz Azul in the Azteca: Jesús Corona, Ramiro Funes Mori, Juan Escobar, Rafael Guerrero, Carlos Rodríguez, Erik Lira, Ignacio Rivero, Rodrigo Huescas, Uriel Antuna, Carlos Rotondi and Iván Morales.
