This afternoon, starting at 6:45 p.m. at the Corona Stadium of the Santos Morelo Territory, Cruz Azul will face Santos Laguna, in a game valid for day 18 of the 2019 Liga MX Opening tournament.
Robert Dante Siboldi published the list of summoned for this game in the morning hours, and was surprised by the citation of 19 players when only 11 can enter the court and seven sit on the bench of substitutes.
And now the reason was discovered. Adrian Aldrete, titular defender in the Machine, became a last minute casualty for seriously injuring himself.
Cruz Azul shared the medical part of the defense and detailed that he has a muscle injury in the right thigh, which has no clear diagnosis yet, but would be low to face Santos Laguna. In the rear he was replaced by Igor Lichnovsky.
