San Salvador, El Salvador.
The Guatemalan Comunicaciones team concluded its place in the quarter-finals of the CONCACAF League, Wednesday, after its victory over Alianza Salvadorino 1-0, with a goal from Honduras Junior Lacayo in the last minutes of the second leg of the round of 16, which was held in San Salvador.
Lacayo was once again his side’s personality when he scored in the 88th minute after a pass from Jorge Aparicio. Honduras also scored a goal in the first leg in Guatemala City, where the Communes took advantage of an important advantage.
The visiting team, led by Uruguayan William Cueto, arrived in Cuscatlan to defend the 2-1 victory achieved last week and ultimately left the series 3-1.
In the first half, Alianza had at least two goal cases and kept the ball for a good part of the match.
The clearest opportunity for the representative of the Salvadoran capital was the chance of the Colombian Victor Arboleda, who hit a strong ball, but the ball passed over the goal, guarded by goalkeeper Kevin Moscoso.
Although Alianza dominated most of the first half, they at times fell into despair and fouls emerged against rival players, some of whom were subjected to penalties and calls for attention from Canadian referee Pierre-Luc Lozier.
The first half ended without major incidents and without changes in both sets.
In the events of the second half, the Comunicaciones came close to the goal of Albos of the Alianza, but the shots were ineffective.
By not guaranteeing the goal, he closed those led by Coito and the alliance began to press but did not find both to get the opponent.
Adonai Martinez, assistant coach of Alianza, sent the capital’s first defender, Rodolfo Zelia, onto the field in the hope that a shot from the striker would win the locals, but Zelaya did or did nothing in the match.
With this result, Alianza says goodbye to the championship and the Comunicaciones awaits his opponent in the next stage.
