Tigres UANL took advantage with a 0-1 away win against Cruz Azul in the first leg of the Clausura quarterfinals in Liga MX, a match played at the Azteca stadium in Mexico City.

At Cruz Azul Iván Morales was the starter, being replaced at halftime. In the visit Igor Lichnovsky entered at 82 minutes.

Cruz Azul’s solitary goal came from Jesús Alberto Dueñas in the 44th minute, taking advantage of the errors of the local defense. Likewise, the visit suffered the expulsion of Nicolás López in the 60’s and the Uruguayan lost the rematch.

And as far as Morales is concerned, the former Colo Colo striker is the target of criticism. Cruz Azul fans exploded on social networks due to the Chilean’s performance.

In fact, the Aztec commentator, Marco Cancino, entered the Creole attacker stating on Twitter that “Iván Morales has not scored a goal with clubs since October 3 of last year, playing for Colo Colo to Palestino. 7 months, 9 days later and the account will continue. Another of those inexplicable decisions by Juan Reynoso (DT), Santiago Giménez to the field”.

Tigres de Lichnovsky and Cruz Azul de Morales will define the qualifier for the semifinals of the Mexican Clausura this Sunday the 15th at the Estadio Universitario de Nuevo León.
