Cruz Azul does not invite you to dream, for now. Despite this good dynamic of three victories in a row, Cruz Azul beat, especially the last two, very limited rivals, with little offensive power and who were down on the scoreboard very quickly. The highlight for this project by Juan Reynoso has been the recovery in the best version of Jonathan Rodríguez, greater defensive solvency and that the players show a good level of commitment that seems intact after the ridicule perpetrated against the Pumas in the Liguilla del last tournament.
Cruz Azul beat Necaxa well. With merit and without going through great hardships. However, the rival in question demanded little of him, being a weak squad, that every six months they disarm him in disarray taking away his best footballers and that he has little response capacity when seeing a bench full of players with minimal merits to be in the First division.

In addition, it must be added that the ‘Profe’ Cruz is inexorably on the tightrope after such a bad start in this tournament. Cruz Azul won, but it does not invite you to dream, for now. Despite showing signs of improvement, especially in individual details and aspects that broadly speaking of the collective, it must be seen against more demanding rivals who tighten more on defense and have more dynamite in attack.
However, having kept a clean sheet, granting few clear scoring chances, that ‘Cabecita’ Rodríguez turned to a very good version where it seems that he is committed to the Cruz Azul project after his ridiculous tantrum in the middle of the pandemic By attending a party prior to a game and that the results are beginning to fall in the short term, there will be greater calm for Juan Reynoso to work on his idea, define an eleven type and that several of the footballers in the squad regain their confidence to compete and feel footballers.
Make it work for those who returned from loan like Pol Fernández and Walter Montoya, defenestrated by the club and with a not very memorable past in their old loan teams, that Alexis Peña to get on his waist and not look like a former footballer and that others like the ‘Cata’ Domínguez and Jesús Corona accumulate good minutes without being in the critical eye of the fans, then, with the result in hand, there can only be news in Cruz Azul, for now.
As at the moment it does not invite you to dream, why is Cruz Azul, and we no longer know all kinds of stories, but there seems to be only good news in a team that seemed to fall permanently before starting to crawl, like the project by Juan Reynoso, and that is saying a lot, although it doesn’t invite you to dream, for now, just … for now.
