We might have kept our unbeaten record intact against Cruz Azul last night, but it was a game to forget according to Tuca Ferretti.
Javier Aquino went off injured before half-time, and Guido Pizarro and Hugo Ayala were both sent off in the last ten minutes.
All three will be sorely missed for our tough trip to Leon next weekend. Aquino has arguably been our best player in recent weeks, while Pizarro and Ayala are part of the defensive backbone that’s only conceded four league goals all season.
Lucky to Get a Point
Tuca was rueful in his post-match press conference. He admitted Cruz Azul were the better side and that we were lucky to escape with a point.
“We had a bad day,” he said.
“We had two players sent off, one injured. It was a day we don’t want to happen again.
“[After a draw] we often we say we missed out on two points, but after everything that happened today, we were fortunate to get one.”
