Cruz Azul Vs. Santos Laguna, CONCACAF Champions League: Javier Orozco Puts Cruz Azul Ahead

After a tentative start to the second half by both sides, Javier Aquino’s brilliant run from the edge of the box through what seemed to be the entirety of the Santos defense gave him the space needed to pick out Javier Orozco in the center of the box. The striker finished easily and Cruz Azul have finally taken advantage of the shoddy defending that has plagued Santos all evening.

It was the culmination of a period of dominance from Cruz Azul, who traded blows with Santos in the first half but now find themselves well and truly in the driver’s seat in this contest. A 1-0 loss in this leg would be far from disastrous for Santos, but if they hope to keep things that close they’ll need to find a way to keep a lot more possession and tighten things up quite a bit at the back.
