Outstanding Players on CONCACAF League
GK Leonel Moreira | Alajuelense – Moreira performed admirably in goal for the Costa Rican team, which resulted in a 3-0 victory away against Real Espana. Moreira recorded a clean sheet by making five saves and five clearances during the game, which led to the victory.
DF Alexis Gamboa | Alajuelense – Alajuelense’s defense, which was anchored by Gamboa, consistently thwarted the Real Espana assault, allowing his team to score goals in transition. Gamboa too had a completion rate of 94%.
DF Giancarlo Gonzalez | Alajuelense – Gonzalez was evidently in the midst of every single 50-50 challenge and courageously dueled with the Real Espana dangermen on aerial balls. He also seemed to be in the middle of every single 50-50 attempt. At the end of the game, he had two thefts, which helped him get the top rating among defenders.
DF Carlos Melendez | Motagua – Melendez not only completed all 12 of his passes in the 0-0 tie with Olimpia, but he also helped prevent an Olimpia offense that had scored seven goals in the previous round.
MF Diego Rodriguez | Motagua – In the end, Rodriguez was the best midfielder because he had the highest pass completion percentage (73 of 76) and added a theft and two shots to his stat line.
MF Jhow Benavidez | Real Espana – Although Real Espana lost 3-0 at Alajuelense, Benavidez was a bright spot with a theft, a shot, and an incredible 113 of 114 passes completed.
MF Freddy Gondola | Alajuelense – Gondola’s deft deflection of a Johan Venegas shot surprised Real Espana goalkeeper Luis Lopez and put Alajuelense ahead. It was a critical goal to finish off a strong effort that included a steal and two shots.
MF Celso Borges | Alajuelense – Borges only seems to grow better with age. With a flawless chip over Lopez’s head, the 34-year-old scored a stunning goal to give Alajuelense a 3-0 lead. Borges completed 94 percent of his passes and added a steal.
FW Brayan Moya, Olimpia – Moya came within a few inches of delivering Olimpia the game-winning goal late in the match with a whizzing short that grazed the top of the Motagua crossbar. He had three shots by the time the night was out.
FW Johan Venegas | Alajuelense – The all-time leader in goals scored in the SCL increased to his already outstanding total with his 16th goal, which was also Alajuelense’s second of the evening. He also shown his ability to create opportunities for others by racking up two assists.
FW Eddie Hernandez | Motagua – With three shots on goal, Hernandez was one of the more active attackers for Motagua in the opposition’s defense. Additionally, Hernandez finished with a completion percentage of 91%.
