KINGSTON, Jamaica – The stage is set for what should be an exciting Scotiabank Concacaf League quarterfinal second leg between Portmore United of Jamaica and Honduran side Motagua on Thursday night at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.
There was no shortage of drama in last week’s first leg in Honduras, as Juan Pablo Montes struck in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to give Motagua a 3-2 first leg win.
Montes had opened the scoring for the Catrachos followed then by a Rubilio Castillo goal, but the Jamaicans hit back for two goals through Ricardo Morris and Jovan East until Montes’ last-gasp winner.
With a 1-0 or 2-1 victory or a win by two goals or more, Portmore United will advance to the semifinals, while a victory or draw would be enough to send Motagua to the final four.
The match will also be a memorable one for Portmore United FW Maalique Foster, who will play his final match with the club before joining Costa Rican side Alajuelense on September 1.
