Cruz Azul vs Inter Miami LIVE: Leagues Cup LIVE – CAZ vs MIA LIVE – MLS and Liga MX stop as…
Cruz Azul vs Inter Miami LIVE: Leagues Cup LIVE – CAZ vs MIA LIVE – MLS and Liga MX come to a halt with the start of the 3rd edition of the Leagues Cup. The tournament begins with the opening match between Liga MX team Cruz Azul and MLS team Inter Miami. Cruz Azul is sitting at the bottom of the current Liga MX table. Similarly, Inter Miami is sitting at the bottom of the current MLS Eastern Conference table. The luck of Inter Miami could start to change since Lionel Messi could debut with Inter Miami.

Cruz Azul is going through a difficult time as its domestic league started at the beginning of the month. He has played 3 games and has lost all three. Atlas outclassed Cruz Azul in their first match, defeating them by a 2-0 margin. Cruz Azul lost its second match by another 2-0 margin against Toluca. Not only were they unable to create clear chances against both Toluca and Atlas, but they also played a man down against Toluca.
Cruz Azul finally managed to score a goal in their third Liga MX game and last game against Tijuana. They even took the lead in this match with a goal just before the half-time break. However, that was the end of fortune in his favor. Tijuana equalized in the 57th minute. 2 minutes into stoppage time, an own goal by Abonia denied Cruz Azul its first Liga MX victory. They now sit bottom of the league table. At least they have the record of winning the first edition of the Leagues Cup in 2019.
However, with rumors of Lionel Messi making his debut for opponent Inter Miami, it’s doubtful how much that record will help them. Inter Miami last won a game in early June in the US Open Cup against the Birmingham Legion. His last MLS win came on May 14 against the New England Revolution. Not surprisingly, like Cruz Azul, Inter Miami is also bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference table. However, they approach the League Cup with two aces.
Argentina’s World Cup-winning captain Lionel Messi and his former Barcelona teammate, Spaniard Sergio Busquets, another World Cup winner, were unveiled as Inter Miami players just days ago. Messi could be making his debut in this game together with Busquets. New coach Gerardo Martino led the team to a 3-0 loss to St. Louis City in their first game. It’s still unclear if Messi and Busquets will play, but if they do, that could give the team plenty of firepower to perform better.

Cruz Azul team news
- Manager Ricardo Ferretti began the season with a 4-2-3-1 formation. However, seeing that the formation was not yielding any fruitful results, he changed it to a 3-4-2-1 formation. That yielded the same result as the first game, so the manager reverted to his familiar 4-2-3-1 formation. It is difficult to know which path he will choose in the League Cup.
- Sebastián Jurado received a red card in the 39th minute of the second match of the MX League against Toluca. He served his suspension in his last game against Tijuana. The coach lined up Andrés Gudino under the goal post instead of Jurado. That suspension will not carry over to the League Cup anyway. Therefore, he can be expected to return for their match against Inter Miami.
- In the event that Messi and Busquets play, the coach could be lining up his strongest team. They finally scored after 2 goalless games in Liga MX with Rivero’s goal, so he could start the game. An own goal by Abonia denied them a 1-0 draw in the last moments of the match. The trainer will be desperate to avoid another similar mistake. Therefore, he could bring back Lotti in his place.
Inter Miami Team News
- Inter Miami owner manager Jorge Mas previously stated that Lionel Messi will make his debut in this match and that Sergio Busquets could also debut with him. The new coach Martino has already made changes to his lineup. However, he missed and may have to change it to 3-4-3 again to include both players if they play Cruz Azul.
- Despite the match featuring regular goalscorer Josef Martínez, the match remained goalless. To accommodate Messi, he could place Nicolás Stefanelli on the right bench and could replace David Ruiz in midfield with Busquets. Josef Martínez could start in the central attacking position with Rodolfo Pizarro on the left. The coach could line up the rest of the team in the same way.
- Noah Allen and Benjamin Cremaschi scored their first MLS goal against DC United. However, even they couldn’t score any goals in the last game. Coach Martino’s new formation may not have worked, but they hope to improve if Messi and Busquets get involved. Defensive duo Kamal Miller and DeAndre Yedlin could be left as backups.
