Cruz Azul vs Santos Laguna: TV channel, live stream, team news & Liga MX Clausura final preview
The Mexican title will be decided on Sunday with La Machina carrying a slim advantage
Cruz Azul hosts Santos Laguna on Sunday in the second leg of the Liga MX final holding a 1-0 aggregate advantage that takes the club achingly close to ending a 24-year drought for the trophy.
Luis Romo provided the go-ahead goal in electric fashion on Thursday, nutmegging a defender amid a twisting run into the box before capitalizing on a fortunate bounce of the ball to find the back of the net. His effort provides favored Cruz Azul some added comfort at the Azteca Stadium in the return match.
However, Santos Laguna have been difficult to keep down during a magical run to the final.

Cruz Azul brings a healthy roster into the second leg, and while manager Juan Reynoso somewhat surprisingly did not start Gimenez in the attack after his semi-final heroics for the first leg, it's possible he changes tune for the second leg in a home environment where Gimenez could be more comfortable.
There will also be the decision of whether to play Ignacio Rivero as a full-back or pushed further forward into more of a wing role.
