Saprissa comes back and beats Comunicaciones for the Concacaf League

Saprissa comes back and beats Comunicaciones for the Concacaf League

The Costa Rican club Saprissa reacted on time and turned the scoreboard of their match for the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Concacaf League against the Guatemalan Comunicaciones, which they beat in a goal festival 4-3.

El Monstruo, who played home, started losing with the goals of Óscar Santis, at 7 and 29; however, he woke up and, before the end of the first half, tied the scoreboard thanks to the scores by Orlando Sinclair, at 40, and Mariano Torres, at 45 + 2.

In addition, Santis reached a triplet, with his goal at 66, but quickly saw how his goal fell again, a minute later, as a result of David Guzmán’s shot (67).

The final punch was given by David Ramírez, at 84, when the creams dreamed of taking something out of the Ricardo Saprissa stadium, located in the capital San José.

The home team were broad dominators of the ball throughout the game, but their poor aim and Santis’s almost perfect effectiveness in the few arrivals of his team, entangled the game.

Despite the defeat, the number of goals scored at home by the Guatemalans allows them to calculate that, with a victory in the return match, they could reach the semifinals of the tournament, the second most important at the club level in the region.

The four semi-finalists and the top two losers from the quarterfinal round will be inducted into the Concacaf Champions League, which will take place in the first half of 2022.
