Cruz Azul appears in the Concacaf Champions League with an eleven very different from the one used in the Guard1anes 2021 of Liga MX
SANTO DOMINGO — Blue Cross debuts in Concacaf Champions League with an alternate frame. Juan Reynoso presented an eleven before Arcahaie in which the presence of Alexis Pena, who debuts with the light blue shirt, in addition to Rafael Read is the only usual headline, while Andres Gudiño will be presented with the first team.
The Peruvian coach sent Andrés Gudiño to the field; Jaiber Jiménez, Alexis Peña, Josué Reyes and José Martínez; Elías Hernández, Rafael Baca, Misael Domínguez and Alexis Gutiérrez; Walter Montoya and Santiago Giménez.
It’s the first time that Reynoso gives game minutes to Alexis Pena, who arrived as a reinforcement for Guard1anes 2021, but has only had participation with the U-20, a category in which he has four appearances.
It also highlights the presence of Rafael Read, who will wear the captain’s badge and has been a starter in the 13 confrontations that La Maquina has faced in the competition of the Liga MX, in which the cement producers are leaders, in addition to boasting a streak of 11 consecutive victories.
On the bench, the presence of four players from the basic forces of Cruz Azul stands out: Luis Pérez, Cristian Jiménez, Pedro Pacheco and Rodrigo Huescas, who are accompanied by Sebastián Jurado, Adrián Aldrete and Yoshimar Yotún.
