Cruz Azul struggle as heavy favorite once again; this time lose to Atlas

It happened again. After having lost their 18-game unbeaten streak to the hands of a winless Querétaro in Round 4, Cruz Azul got right back up and had already piled up a brand-new three-game winning streak. That is until yesterday, when they visited lowly Atlas, who had only won one game all season and were tied for last place in the league with only 5 points.

After witnessing how the first 20 seconds of the match went down, one couldn’t help but picture a stomping by Cruz Azul, after LB Jesús Angulo committed an unforced error and gave Santi Giménez the game’s first open shot attempt.
