After just over three months of activity, the 2018 Copa Apertura edition comes to an end. Today, in a duel that promises many emotions, Monterrey and Cruz Azul will define the new champion of the cup tournament with the BBVA Bancomer Stadium as the stage.
The Rayados come from winning in penal to Pachuca. During the regular time, the game ended 3 to 3. For the regios, Rogelio Funes Mori scored a double and Daniel Lajud made the third; while for the Tuzos, scored Miguel Tapias, Franco Jara and "Chaco" Giménez, at minute 97. In addition, Nicolás Sánchez was sent off at minute 42 and will not be able to play the final.
In the other semifinal, Cruz Azul got his pass agonizingly in front of Leon. At minute 19, the emerald box lost its best man, forward Mauro Boselli, who was ejected after nudging cement defender Julio César Domínguez. After 45 minutes without goals, Fernando Navarro Morán opened the scoring in the 52nd minute for Leon and 20 minutes later the cement discount came from Adrián Alderete. The game, like the other semifinal, was resolved with a series of penalties, in which the only one who failed for the Bajío was Walter González.
Monterrey has won the cup tournament a couple of times: first in 1992 and then in the Apertura 2017 edition, by Antonio Mohamed, when they beat Pachuca in the final by a minimum difference. For its part, Cruz Azul has three Cups in its showcase: the first was obtained in the 1968-1969 edition, just opposite Monterrey; the second one came in the 1996-1997 edition and the last one won it in the 2013 Clausura edition.
The balance of his last 10 direct confrontations favors the Machine, with three wins, six draws and only one victory for Monterrey. The last time the faces were seen was on October 6, in Day 12 of the Opening 2018, and Cruz Azul took the victory by 2 to 1.
