Panama City, Aug 23 – Venezuelan coach Francisco Perlo and his Tauro qualified this Tuesday for the quarterfinals of the Concacaf League by drawing 1-1 at home with Sporting San Miguelito, of Brazilian Felipe Borowsky .

Those of Perlo asserted the rent of 0-1 that they got eight days ago from the payments of Sporting.

Tauro generated the first danger opportunity in minute 2 with a mid-range shot by Rolando Botello that Adolfo Machado, on the goal line, deflected.

The duel became a dispute locked in the middle of the field.

Taurus fell back and played on the counterattack, a clear provision that the need to win with a difference of two goals or more was his rival’s.

Sporting San Miguelito’s luck seemed to begin to change in the 32nd minute with a drop from the right by Kevin Galván, who connected with Tomás Rodríguez.

From there came a filtered pass to Edson Samms, who finished off the goal, but in his trajectory the ball hit Tauro defender Gerardo Negrete and went to the bottom of the goal for 0-1.

In the second half Tauro pressed, took over the spaces against a rival who was handcuffed again, and left everything the same in the 78th minute with a header from Irving Gudiño, after a breakaway down the flank by Hilberto Peralt.

With the tie, the locals dedicated themselves to taking care of the 2-1 advantage on aggregate.

In the quarterfinals Tauro will face the best of the series between the Dominicans from Cibao and the Hondurans from Motagua.
