Cruz Azul has a ‘hellish’ debut at home after losing to Toluca at the Azteca

Blue Cross had a nightmare debut at home in the day 2 of the Opening 2023after losing 1-0 against Toluca on the field of Aztec stadium in a duel that was marked by the specific errors of the celestial ones.

The game started quite intense with both teams looking for the rival goal and it was the Machine who had the first danger with a shot from Kevin Brown which crashed into the crossbar.

However, it was the Devils who opened the scoring after the referee awarded a penalty in their favor for a foul Ignacio Rivero about Maxi Araujo.

Was Tiago Volpigoalkeeper from the Mexican team who, with all his experience, took the ball and effectively collected the maximum penalty to put his team ahead at 35 minutes of play.

The goal disconcerted La Máquina and in a long stroke Sebastián Jurado came out at the wrong time, for which he saved the ball with his hands outside the area and cost him the expulsion from the game before the break.

Already in the complementary part, Cruz Azul turned to the front in search of an equalizer, but playing with one less ended up costing him physical wear and tear and when the game was dying, the Devils ended the game with a goal from Juan Pablo Domínguez.

In this way, those led by Ignacio Ambriz achieved their first win of the tournament and remain undefeated after two days, while the Machine reaped its second setback.

The next day, Ricardo Ferretti’s pupils will visit the border to face Tijuana. On the other hand, Toluca will host the Bravos de Juárez at the Nemesio Diez Stadium.
