By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belizean champions Verdes FC will face El Salvador’s Club Deportivo Platense in the preliminary round of the 2022 Scotiabank Concacaf League.

Concacaf on Wednesday announced the results of the draw for 2022 Scotiabank Concacaf League Preliminary Round and Round of 16 leading up to the sixth and final edition of the SCL in 2023.

By virtue of being ranked lower than Platense (At the draw, teams in Pots 1 and 3 were higher ranked, teams in pots 2 and 4 were lower ranked and Verdes were in Pot 2), Verdes will play the first game at home and the second leg away.

The game in Belize will play on July 26, 27, or 28 and the match in Zacatecoluca, El Salvador on August 2, 3, or 4.

Platense from the city of Zacatecoluca is playing its first international tournament in 47 years. They were UNCAF champions in 1975 according to Zacatecoluca La Revista. Their nickname is Los Gallos – the Roosters.

Their stadium, the Estadio Antonio Toledo Valle has a capacity for 10,000 fans.

Should Verdes get past Platense in the preliminary round in July and August, they will then face another Salvadoran club, Alianza, in the Round of 16 in August.

Coincidentally, Platense just got eliminated by Alianza in the Salvadoran League championship, so they are banking on beating Verdes to avenge their recent loss.

For Verdes, Platense seem to be the most accessible rivals the national champs have had in recent years in the Concacaf League.

We’ll find out in July and August.
