Cruz Azul and Pumas will play a match with a league flavor on matchday 17 of the 2020 Guardians, because both squads will be playing their direct pass to the knockout phase and whoever let go of the victory could go to the playoff to look for a place in the quarterfinals.
On paper the set of The Machine is the one who arrives at a bad moment to the last match that will play in the regular phase of the championshipBecause of their last four matches they have only won one and taken three defeats, while the Auriazules have played five matches without knowing defeat.
However, the statistics are in favor of the celestial ones, since they have not lost in quality of premises before the university ones for six years, during the 2014 Apertura, falling by a score of 2-1, however, since that tournament they have registered two wins and two draws at home against the Pumas.
For its part, those led by Andrés Lillini will try to make valid the good season they have had as visitorsBecause of the seven games they have played outside the University Olympic Games, they have only lost one, winning twice and drawing four others.
Likewise, those of the UNAM have been able to score goals in each of their recent five games, adding a total of seven annotations, but nevertheless, Cruz Azul has only been able to score in one of their last five games, making two annotations and going zero in the remaining four.
