Here's a preview from CONCACAF:
Following a 2-0 1st leg win last week at home, Monterrey will look to clinch a second-straight CONCACAFChampions League title on Wednesday in the final's 2nd leg against Santos in Torreon.
Humberto Suazolifted the Rayados to victory in the opener with two goals (60’, 86’). The Chilean is the tournament’s leading scorer with seven goals, but will miss the return match due to yellow card accumulation. Defenders Osmar Mares and Felipe Baloy, both of Santos, are also suspendedfor the same reason. Santos comes into the game on a high after beating defending Mexican league champion Tigres 3-0 on Saturday in Clausura play. Rodolfo Salinas (20’), Carlos Darwin Quintero (23’) and Juan Pablo Rodriguez (66’) each scored for the team led by head coach Benjamin Galindo. With the three points, Santos moved back on top of the Torneo Clausura standings.
