The final of the Liga MX Clausura 2021 is already defined. Cruz Azul and Santos Laguna will face each other in the two matches that will determine who will be the new champion of Mexican football.
Although this is not the first time the two teams have met in a final. Cruz Azul and Santos already did it 13 years ago, in the Clausura 2008, where Santos defeated La Máquina.
Now history repeats itself and the two finalists will battle it out in two matches to be held at different venues. TSM Corona will host the first leg and the Estadio Azteca the second leg, so Cruz Azul, the undisputed leaders of this competition, will have the privilege of playing the second championship match at home.
When is the final?
Liga MX already announced that the first leg will take place on 27 May at TSM Stadium and the second leg will be played on Sunday 30 May at Estadio Azteca.
A revenge game?
This final will be a revenge match for La Máquina, who will try to settle their score against Santos Laguna, who beat them in the 2008 Clausura final. Cruz Azul may be the tournament leaders, but the Torreón team already know what it’s like to win a final against La Maquina.

Who is the favourite?
Cruz Azul is the favourite against the Guerreros of Santos Laguna, as they proved to be the best throughout the tournament, leading the standings with 38 points.
However, taking into account the previous Liguilla stages, with the history of direct confrontations in short tournaments, the numbers of the two teams are quite similar, although leaning a little to Santos Laguna’s side. In head-to-head history, only one win makes the difference in favor of Cruz Azul.
