GUADALAJARA, Mexico – Herculez Gomez and Santos Laguna are hoping home cooking helps them overturn a 1-0 deficit to Houston in the second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday. And if this weekend’s win over Atlante is any indicator, los Guerreros are ready for the challenge.
Blackout rules may apply.
HEREDIA, Costa Rica – The LA Galaxy counted themselves fortunate to escape Costa Rica with a point Thursday night, although that seemed the fairest result in a vigorous clash that neither side deserved to lose.
Two questionable officiating decisions might have been enough to sink LA in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series against Herediano, leaving them a deficit to dig out from in next week's rematch at the Home Depot Center.
Un triunfo por la mínima diferencia en el Home Depot Center bastaría para que LA Galaxy clasifique a la semifinal de la Concachampions tras empatar a cero goles ante Herediano en Costa Rica este jueves en el duelo de ida de los Cuartos de Final del torneo.
Fue un partido mayormente parejo en que ambos equipos pudieron haber marcado goles si no fuera por el travesaño.
HEREDIA, Costa Rica – The LA Galaxy will head into next week's second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals with a slight advantage after securing a 0-0 draw Thursday night with Herediano, a clash almost as tight as the scoreline.
Both teams hit the crossbar – Herediano did so twice, with Ismael Gómez smacking the horizontal on an 87th-minute penalty kick – and benefited from fine backline play in a game played mostly between the boxes, with the Costa Ricans creating better chances despite seeing less of the ball.
