Isaac Brizuela is very clear about it. The backing, unconditional support and affection that the Rojiblanca Nation has given them, both at the Estadio Akron and at the Azteca, are and will always be fundamental, which is why he showed his confidence that, like every visit to the #CapitalRojiblanca, Chivas' player number 12 will make the difference from the stands and together they can get the three points this Saturday night when they face Cruz Azul in Matchday 17 of the Apertura 2022.

Quotes from Isaac Brizuela's videoconference:"We want to play the playoffs at home, our fans have made our locality weigh a lot and in the last few games I think we have seen that connection between us, the way they have encouraged us has been spectacular, they have infected us with desire and they always force us to give the extra."

"It's a tough test for us ahead of the playoffs and we have to take it with commitment, as if we were already in the Liguilla, we have to return to being the best defense as we were for a good part of the tournament."

"No matter how good a match we play, if you don't take your chances and then make a mistake, they are rivals that take advantage of any circumstance, so we have to be focused for the entire 90 minutes and take advantage of the chances we have, we have to finish".

"When you enter the Playoffs we all have the same opportunities, it's a new tournament, maybe it's said that those who close at home have more chances, but I don't see it that way, I think we have the same chances".

"Cruz Azul comes with the motivation of having victories in their last matches, they have regained confidence in terms of mood and soccer, we know that it will be complicated because they will want to make their home ground count, although we know that in the CDMX our fans always cheer us on".

"At the beginning of the tournament we draw up a plan of goals and group objectives, and we will try to climb until we reach the title".

"We have already talked (about the renewal of his contract), we are calmer, everything is going very well, I am very happy for the opportunity to be in this great institution and that forces me to work better."

"I wish to retire at Chivas, let's hope that we have many more years left, not just a few, that I can be physically well, that there are no injuries and that I can compete at a good level."
