KINGSTON, Jamaica - The opening round of Caribbean qualifying for the 2013/14 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) comes to an exciting conclusion Tuesday with three games. Each of the seven participants remains in contention for a place in the confederation's annual club championship.
In Couva, Trinidad, a win or a draw over Antigua Barracuda FC will give W Connection the Group One title and an automatic CCL berth. W Connection won the group opener 4-0 on Friday over Caledonia AIA, which defeated Antigua 3-1 on Sunday.
Depending on results, Group Two could come down to tie-breakers, as all four teams can still claim either an automatic spot in the CCL or a place in the runners-up playoff.
Table-topping Valencia is in the driver's position with six points from two matches. In order to confirm its participation in the next CCL, the Haitian side needs only a draw against Boys' Town of Jamaica in the second game of the evening's doubleheader at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Kingston, Jamaica.
The opener will see second-place Portmore United take-on Bayamon FC, which is searching for its first points of the competition.
