ANDIn 2017, Chivas eliminated Atlas. A wound that remains open for the then coach of the Rojinegros, José Guadalupe Cruz, who cries out for revenge when speaking with Excelsior.
It is time for revenge, although now the champion is Atlas and perhaps that changes the circumstances of that time, and the one who will try to dethrone him and win the series will be Chivas”.
The 2017 quarterfinal series was tied on aggregate, but Chivas passed for the best position in the table. It was a dense game, with few emotions and marked by the Foxes’ lack of forcefulness.
It was not well played, but rather close. We are left with great sadness at the elimination, especially because it is a classic. In the second leg we had five very bad minutes and the only oversight we had cost us the result, ”he assured.
The Atlas, however, managed to shake off the slab of appearing before his hated rival as a recurring victim.
The continuity of Diego Cocca makes a difference, with a very structured style of play, it gives him a plus, beyond the notable improvement of Chivas, the series is quite even”, said Profe Cruz.
On the sidewalk in front there are no longer the Chivas with claws and little football, “I see the work of Ricardo Cadena as more meritorious, without underestimating what Matías Almeyda did,” Cruz concluded.
