ALAJUELA, Costa Rica– A wide open series heads to a decisive second leg when San Carlos of Costa Rica hosts Santa Tecla of El Salvador on Tuesday night at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto in Alajuela, Costa Rica.
The first leg played by the two sides last Tuesday night ended in a 0-0 stalemate, with neither attack able to get the better of its defensive counterpart.
An injury to Bryan Tamacas means that playmaker Gerson Mayen will have to pick up the slack for the visiting Cuscatlecos and help set the table for goalscorers like Armando Polo.
A first ever Concacaf club tournament match at home for San Carlos will be one to remember for its fans.
In tow will be veterans FW Alvaro Saborio and MF Jairo Arrieta, each of whom will be relied upon to supply goals.
Their history suggests that could well happen, as the two players rank first and second on the all-time scoring list of Costa Rican players in Concacaf club competition, with 12 and 11 goals, respectively.
