SANTA TECLA, El Salvador– The Preliminary Round of the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League continues with the second leg between El Salvador’s Santa Tecla and Nicaragua’s Real Esteli on Tuesday night at the Estadio Las Delicias in Santa Tecla, El Salvador.
Real Esteli carry a 2-1 aggregate lead heading into Tuesday’s match and will look to win its first ever Concacaf series with a draw or a win in El Salvador.
Juan Barrera was the leading man for the Pinolero outfit with a goal in the first leg and Real Esteli will require another top performance from Nicaragua’s all-time leading scorer at the international level in order to advance.
Santa Tecla will feel plenty confident about its chances of mounting a comeback.
The Cuscatleco club boasts a 2W-2D-0L record on home soil in Concacaf club competition and will once again be relying on the home fans to provide a boost to reach the 2019 SCL quarterfinals.
