León vs Cruz Azul - Team news

León make it to this game following their 2-2 draw against América last week, which had quite some controversy due to matters on and off the pitch. Due to that game, coach Nicolás Larcamón will not be around after being handed a two-match ban due to a heated argument with Las Águilas' boss, Nicolás Larcamón. León are unbeaten in their last eight Liga MX matches, and the hosts will surely be keen to extend that streak with one of the most popular teams in the country.

On the other side of the pitch, Cruz Azul enter this clash with six wins in their last eight matches, including an away win against Pachuca last time out. The only blips in their recent form had to do with a loss against Mazatlán (1-3) and a draw against Querétaro, where they dropped the ball in the final moments of the match. La Máquina has experienced a massive resurgence since Ricardo Ferretti's signing as coach, and they will be interested in having the league watching how they perform against one of the title contenders.

Here is the list of absences for both sides ahead of this game.

León: Yairo Moreno (injured), Lucas Romero (suspended).

Cruz Azul: No injured players .
