CCL Update: the race for the final spot in Group 5

By Frank Stranzl

The race for the final spot in the Earthquakes' CONCACAF Champions League group could be decided as early as Sunday.

Guatemalan Apertura winner Comunicaciones weathered the road leg of their semifinal with a 1-1 result against Marquense on Wednesday. Barring an upset, that would mean that the winner of Heredia-Halcones FC would join the Earthquakes and Montreal Impact in Group 5.

Halcones FC took a 2-0 lead at home last night. While that might seem like a significant margin, Heredia won't feel like they're too far behind come Sunday; the squad is 7-0-2 at home during the Clausura, including a 5-0 drubbing of Halcones FC on May 19. Apparently trips to Estadio del Monte on the Caribbean side of Guatemala are a daunting task.
