Liga MX Preview: Cruz Azul set to continue unbeaten run

Created on Feb. 06, 2014 1:20 PM EST

League leaders Cruz Azul will be expected to maintain their unbeaten start to Liga MX when they host Atlante on Sunday.

Cruz Azul have won four and drawn one of their opening five games in the Liga MX's Clausura season and will be the favourites for victory when they travel to 15th-placed Atlante.

Argentinean pair Mauro Formica and Mariano Pavone are likely to be central to Cruz Azul's chances.

Both Argentines have two goals in the Clausura with Formica having scored the opener in his side's 2-0 victory away to Guadalajara last week. 

Cruz Azul lead Liga MX by a point from America, while Toluca are third on 10.

America could move top of the table for 24 hours when they host fifth-placed Pachuca on Saturday, while Toluca will look to keep pressure on the top two when they welcome Chiapas to the Estadio Nemesio Diez on Sunday.

Bottom club Tigres UANL are the only side in Liga MX yet to win in the Clausura campaign and will look to end that run when they host ninth-placed Santos Laguna.

In other fixtures in round six, Tijuana will host Monterrey on Friday, Pumas UNAM will visit Leon, Atlas are set to face Morelia, while Puebla will clash with Guadalajara and Queretaro must take on Veracruz.
