Columbus Crew players ready for Campeones Cup final

Columbus Crew players are excited for the Campeones Cup final against Cruz Azul on Wednesday at Field, with midfielder Lucas Zelarayan claiming the rivalry between MLS and Liga MX strengthens the competition. 

This is the third rendition of the tournament after it was established in 2018 in an effort to collaborate with Liga MX. The Cup features one game between the reigning champions of Major League Soccer and the Mexican league to crown the best of North America. 

Zelarayan knows the importance of the match after playing with Mexican side Tigres UANL for various years. 

“It is an important game to play against Cruz Azul or to play against any other team from MX. It’s going to be special for me because I played for four years with Tigres, and it is a league that I know very well, and that I have very good memories of,” Zelarayan said.

“This rivalry that we’ve had in the last few years helps both leagues to rise, to compete and improve, one with the other. I know my adversaries, I have played against them. I hope that we can match the circumstances, rise to the challenge, and that this is going to be a very nice match.”
