Connection, Caledonia end CONCACAF campaigns tonight

Trinidad and Tobago Pro League teams DirecTV W Connection and Neal & Massy Caledonia AIA will close off their CONCACAF Champions League campaigns tonight in differing circumstances.

Caledonia travels to Honduras to face CD Marathón with only pride at stake for both teams as United States Major League Soccer (MLS) team Seattle Sounders has already clinched the sole qualification spot available.

But there is still a lot to play for at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva where Connection hosts Mexican outfit Chivas de Guadelajara from 8 pm. Although Connection is already eliminated, Chivas is four points behind Guatemalan group leaders Xelajú and need a point or three tonight.

Connection lost 4-0 away to Chivas last month and would not expect the Mexicans to be any less aggressive tonight.

Patrons at the Ato Boldon Stadium will be allowed to bring coolers but are asked to leave glass bottles at home. Entrance fee is $40 and gates open from 6.30 pm.

Caledonia and Connection each has just one point so far in the CONCACAF group stage and face each other on Friday in the second First Citizens Cup semifinal at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

Rangers and Defence Force play from 6 pm in the other semifinal fixture on Friday at the same venue.
