SANTA TECLA, El Salvador – The 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League continues on Tuesday with the Round of 16 kicking off between Santa Tecla of El Salvador and San Carlos of Costa Rica at the Estadio Las Delicias in Santa Tecla, El Salvador.
Santa Tecla arrives into the contest with plenty of confidence after eliminating Real Esteli of Nicaragua 2-2 on aggregate with the away goal tiebreaker going in favor of the Cuscatleco club.
Andres Flores and Armando Polo supplied the goals for Santa Tecla over the two legs in the Preliminary Round and each will be looking to do the same in the next week against the Tico outfit.
As for San Carlos, these are uncharted waters.
A year after winning the second division title, San Carlos stunned the Costa Rican football world by taking home the 2019 Clausura title.
They will now be looking for similar heroics in its first ever Concacaf tournament against a Santa Tecla side that is appearing in its second SCL.
