Motagua has a new date with history on Wednesday to face Etisalat from Guatemala in the first leg of the CONCACAF League final.
The blue team arrives in the match with the task of getting a good result in return for their return, for their part, Los Cremas have arrived in Tegucigalpa to storm the National Stadium.
Those led by Diego Vazquez have one goal in mind, to become the champion of CONCACAF, a tournament they twice fought back when they lost finals to Herediano and Sapresa.
This will be the fourth time that the Comunicaciones have faced a Honduran opponent in CONCACAF. The first was in the 2019 preliminary round against Marathon, who they ousted at the Sampdrano Deluge after leading 3-2 on aggregate. In the same tournament, they were knocked out by Olympia in the quarter-finals, and they achieved a solid home win by 2 to zero, the same that was preserved in the second leg.
For the 2020 season, in another preliminary key, Los Cremas shined in a match that will remain in the history of world football, because against Motagua, on October 22 in Tegucigalpa, they tied 2-2 in 90 minutes and the key should have been. Determined in penalty kicks with 36 charged in total, the Hurricane was the winner after converting 15, more than its opponent, the longest distance in an international competition.
Nobody knows what it means to win the tournament in the CONCACAF format, so this Wednesday will open another chapter in the history of the competition.
Diego Vazquez said in a press conference before: “Communicación is a good team, but Motagua has the same and more. It will certainly be a contested match but the characteristics of Motagua football can harm it. We have to take precautions against its danger.” the last.
