CCL - 2020 - Atlanta vs Motagua

Atlanta United vs. CD Motagua | Concacaf Champions League Match Preview

2020 Concacaf Champions League — Round of 16, Leg 2
Atlanta United vs. CD Motagua
Fifth Third Bank Stadium — Kennesaw
February 25 — 8:00 PM ET


Having secured a 1-1 draw in the opening leg in Honduras, Atlanta United look to be the first MLS team to book their ticket into the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals when they host Motagua at Fifth Third Bank Stadium Tuesday night.

Shorthanded due to injuries and visa delays, Atlanta United weren't the best version of itself, but scored a valuable away goal when Josef Martinez leveled one minute after Roberto Aldana gave the hosts the lead. 

The winner meets either Comunicaciones or Club America in the quarterfinals. That series is also level at one heading to Estadio Azteca Wednesday night.
