Cirilo Saucedo Nájera (born January 5, 1982 in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico) is a Mexican goalkeeper. He currently plays for Tijuana one of the teams of the Primera División de México.

Saucedo came to prominence playing for Club León of the Primera A in Mexico. After leading the team to a championship in the 2003 Clausura, Saucedo's team lost to Dorados de Sinaloa in the playoff to determine which team was promoted to the Primera División. Nevertheless, Saucedo moved up, being contracted by the Dorados to reinforce their team.

In his first season in the first division, Saucedo started all 17 games for Sinaloa, allowing 32 goals. Following the 2006 Clausura season, Saucedo's team Dorados was relegated to the Mexican First Division "A". Rather than playing in the lower divisions of the lower leagues, Saucedo was snatched up by CD Veracruz prior to the Apertura 2006 season. A shoulder injury limited him to play in only 2 games for the Red Sharks.In 2007, he was traded to UANL Tigres for Sebastián González. He spent 3 "short" tournaments there before the 2008 Apertura when the arrival of Oscar Pérez prompted Saucedo's exit from the club.

Tigres loaned the goalkeeper to newly promoted Indios de Ciudad Juárez where he consolidated himself as a starter; he contributed to Indios' semi-final run of the Mexican championship, and more importantly staying at top flight of Mexican football.

With the conclusion of his loan, Saucedo returned to Tigres for the 2009 Apertura. Later he went to win the Superliga with UANL Tigres.After a tied game with Chicago Fire(1-1) and penalty kicks (4-3).
