I need a replacement/equivalent Spanish phrase for the English "make or break". I used "puede hace o rompe" originally but now doubt whether that will work/seem too 'English'
Spanish idiom help, what would a native speaker use? Watch

please, to all posters if you want the translation of a word and even more an idiom, try to put it in a context, because quite often don't exist a total equivalent...
first, after a modal verb (and not only for spanish) don't conjugate, then "puede hacer o romper", and besides that expression don't make sense in spanish...
I understand that "make or break" means that anything results in a succes or a failure, I don't remember any spanish idiom with exactly that meaning...
Could be "triunfar o fracasar"...
or "verb + o no" (puede triunfar o no, puede ayudar o no, ect...)
When you are refering to a make or break moment, we use "momento decisivo/crucial/critico"...
