2020 Concacaf League
Club Deportivo Marathón vs. Forge FC

Estadio Tiburcio Carías Andino – Tegucigalpa, Honduras
Down, but not out.
After suffering a heartbreaking loss to Haitian club Arcahaie FC in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Concacaf League last week, Forge FC has one more shot at qualifying for the 2021 Champions League via Tuesday’s special “play-in” match versus Club Deportivo Marathón of Honduras
Forge earned historic wins over Club Deportivo Municipal Limeño in El Salvador during the preliminary round and Tauro FC in Panama in the round of 16, and looked poised to become the CPL team to reach the final four of this continental competition. Arcahaie FC had other ideas, though.
Tuesday could be a history-making night for Forge, as a win over Marathón would also see them advance to next year’s Concacaf Champions League, becoming the first CPL outfit to qualify for the Concacaf region’s most prestigious club competition.
