By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Verdes fell 0-2 to Salvadoran champs Alianza in Scotiabank Concacaf League on Wednesday night at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan.
Verdes had kept the Salvadorans at bay but giving up a one-man advantage when Everal Trapp was redcarded in the 47’ tipped the match in Alianza’s favour.
To make up for the man lost in defense, Verdes inserted Jahron Myvette for striker Facundo Garnier.
Playing in the rain, Alianza pressed harder and got lucky in the 57’ when goalkeeper Woodrow West couldn’t control the ball after a shot by Jonathan Jiménez. The ball got away from West and Colombian Víctor Landazuri pounced on it and placed it into the net.
Alianza pressed even harder and increased their lead in the 67’ with a header by Rodolfo Zelaya to the left post. West stretched but couldn’t reach the ball and Alianza were up 2-0.
The Salvadoran champions were on the offensive for most of the first half, but it was Verdes who had the best break. Krisean Lopez fired a low shot in the 43’ but goalkeeper Mario González made a good save.
That was Verdes second best break of the match.
The best was a header by Edwin Villeda Bernal that hit the post and bounced back in the 84’.
Alianza’s Narciso Orellana was redcarded in the 91’ but it made no difference as the game was practically over then.
