Comunicaciones and Monterrey get underway in the CONCACAF Champions Cup when they lock horns at the Estadio Doroteo Guamuch Flores on Wednesday.
Both sides are currently unbeaten in eight consecutive matches and we anticipate a thrilling midweek cup battle.
Comunicaciones were denied a fourth win on the trot last Thursday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Coban Imperial in the Guatemalan top flight.
With that result, Ivan Sopegno’s men have now gone eight consecutive games without defeat in all competitions, claiming five wins and three draws since a 2-0 loss against Malacateco on November 30.
Comunicaciones have enjoyed a decent start to the new Guatemala Liga Nacional Clausura campaign as they sit third in the table with seven points from their opening three matches.
Monterrey, meanwhile, turned in a resilient team performance as they fought back from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw against Club America on Sunday.
Fernando Ortiz’s side are now unbeaten in eight straight games, a run which has seen them rise to the top of the Liga MX standings, having picked up 11 points from their five matches.
This fine run of results is due to the solid job done at the attacking end of the pitch, where Monterrey have scored 13 goals in their eight games since November’s 1-0 loss to Atletico de San Luis.
