CCL ¼ Finals, 1st leg round-up

CONCAFA Champions League | ¼ Finals

The first legs of the ¼ final stages of the CONCAFA Champions League have been completed. The four games left everything positioned nicely for the return games.


Adelphia scored at the beginning and at the end of this match. Luis Velasquez scored after three minutes, following good play from rookie Jordan Wilcox. With Santos looking for a vital away goal, Chris Bartowski intercepted a wayward pass and played an inch-perfect through pass to Velasquez who calmly outpaced the Santos defenders and finished under Santos goalkeeper Quimberto.


ALFA secured a template performance for this season, with a wily 1-0 win over Mexican giants Pachuca at the ALFA Arena. A first half Roman Baric strike was enough to keep things very open for the trip to Mexico.


Angel continued from where they left off against Juvenese in the last round. They took an early 2-0 lead, with goals from Carlos Suárez  and Giovanni. Patrick Brady must have made one heck of a half-time teamtalk. Olympians began the second half as a team possessed. Eventually they broke down the Angel defence and scored courtesy of a Martijn Bockel header. With six minutes remaining, Olympians got a vital second away goal, when Nelinho struck following a rebounded Bockel free-kick. With it square at 2-2, Olympians know 0-0, or 1-1 will get them through.


In the all-Mexican affair, there was nothing between Tigres and Pumas. One of these teams will make it through, but there was no apparent superiority following the first leg.
