KINGSTON, Jamaica – Arabe Unido is leaving nothing to chance as it heads into the second leg of its 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF League Round of 16 tie versus Arnett Gardens of Jamaica.

The Panamanian side owns a 3-0 advantage on aggregate following last week’s first leg win in Panama, but don’t expect the 2017 SCL semifinalists to just sit back and defend its lead in Thursday’s second leg at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

“It’s a tough game, we had scoreline in our favor at home and I hope for the same tomorrow,” said Arabe Unido Head Coach Carlos Ruiz in his pre-match press conference on Wednesday.

“It is going to be a difficult match but we expect to do things well. We are going to look for game like we always try to do in every match and try to clinch the match with a goal which would make things tough for them,” added Ruiz.

While Arnett Gardens will have the full backing of a home crowd, it is not the fans in Jamaica or the challenge of playing away from home that has Ruiz concerned.

“They have very interesting players, they have very fast forwards so we’ll have to be careful against them. In the first leg they were strong on some transitions and we hope to control them well,” concluded Ruiz.
