[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Week 2]
The Montreal Impact fielded only two starters from its MLS game on Saturday and paid with a 1-0 loss at tiny Heredia in
Guatemala City -- the first by an MLS club this season to a non-MLS club.
The Impact, which beat the San Jose Earthquakes, 1-0, in the opener, had Spaniard Piscu
sent off in the 44th minute and held off the Guatemalan club until Colombian Charles Cordoba
scored in the 88th minute
which was making its regional debut, finished with a 15-5 edge in shots, but Montreal had the best chance until Cordoba's goal. Blake Smith
hit the crossbar in
the 72nd minute.
The Impact, which faces a busy week, did not bring Italians stars Marco Di Vaio
and Alessandro Nesta
and midfielder Patrice Bernier
on the trip.
The Group 5 game was moved to Guatemala City because from Heredia's
Estadio Del Monte in Morales didn't meet Concacaf standards.
