The Mexican title will be decided on Sunday with La Machina carrying a slim advantage

Cruz Azul hosts Santos Laguna Sunday during the second stage of the Liga MX final holding a 1-0 cumulative advantage that brings the club on the verge of ending a 24-year drought for the trophy.

Luis Romo provided the go-ahead goal electrically on Thursday, crushing a defender in the middle of a twisted run into the box before capitalizing on a lucky bounce from the ball to find the back of the net. His efforts bring favorite Cruz Azul additional comfort at the Azteca stadium in the second leg.

However, Santos Laguna was difficult to maintain in a magical race to the final.

Cruz Azul brings a healthy squad to the second leg, and although manager Juan Reynoso didn’t start Gimenez in the attack after his heroics in the semi-finals for the first leg, there is a possibility that he will change tune for the return leg in a home environment where Gimenez could be more comfortable.
