GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – Comunicaciones collected a 0-0 draw against Guastatoya in the second leg of the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League Round of 16 to reach the 2019 SCL quarterfinals on Wednesday night at the Estadio Doroteo Guamuch Flores in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
With the result, Los Cremas earned a 2-1 victory on aggregate.
The two sides traded chances in the first half, with Stheven Robles having the first crack at goal for Comunicaciones in the 28’ on a stinging right-footed shot that went wide.
That was followed by Guastatoya’s Kendel Herrarte narrowly missing over the crossbar with a right-footed shot in the 40’.
As the second half wore on, the game opened up and became an end-to-end affair with Guastatoya throwing more numbers forward in search of a series-decisive goal.
But that also opened up space for Los Cremas and Robles had the clincher on his right foot, but sent his effort over the crossbar in the 77’.
Guastatoya’s last chance came via a Luis Martinez header in the 89’ that just missed the target, sealing Comunicaciones’ spot in the next round.
