MIAMI, Florida – A chance to compete in a first ever Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League will be at stake for two teams on Tuesday night, as Forge FC of Canada take on Haiti’s Arcahaie in the quarterfinals of the 2020 Scotiabank Concacaf League at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
In just their second year of existence, Forge continue to defy the odds and impress neutrals with their results, having accumulated back-to-back wins on Central American soil.
The reigning Canadian Premier League champions opened their 2020 SCL with a 2-1 win at Municipal Limeno of El Salvador, before earning a 2-1 victory in Panama against Tauro FC.
Four different players have found the back of the net for Forge in the 2020 SCL, including David Choiniere, who is Forge’s all-time leading scorer in the SCL with three goals.
Tuesday’s contest should present another stiff challenge, as Arcahaie head into the match overflowing with confidence thanks to their 3-0 win over Jamaican side Waterhouse in the previous round.
The main men to watch for Caribbean club will be Wendy Louis-Jean and Johnny Pierre Paul, each of whom scored in the win at Waterhouse. Louis-Jean was razor-sharp against the Jamaicans, completing 40 passes, while Pierre Paul registered a team-leading three shots.
Both teams are looking to become the fourth club from their respective country to qualify for the SCCL, with Forge aiming to join the likes of Toronto FC, Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps, while Arcahaie hopes to follow in the footsteps of Don Bosco, Valencia and Tempete.
Kick-off is scheduled for 8:00 PM ET and can be seen via TSN.ca/TSN App (Canada), TUDN (USA-Spanish), FS1 (USA-English), ESPN 2 (Central America) and Fox Sports 2 (Mexico).
