    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – Santiago Morandi has thought about how his Municipal side can defeat Mexico’s Pachuca.

    With his spectacular saves, the Uruguayan goalkeeper has become a leading figure for the Guatemalan power, which hosts the Tuzos in a CONCACAF Champions League Group 1 game on Wednesday.

    "We're ready for the match,” said Morandi, who was not involved in Sunday's 1-1 domestic draw with Malacateco.  “The team is always in good spirits.  If I play a game and I think that an opponent is superior, I better not even play it. We have everything to win.

    "We are Municipal and we have to think of ourselves.  We have the ability to play against anyone.”

    The former Altamira player also acknowledged Pachuca’s quality, while proclaiming his desire to secure three points: "It's a very experienced opponent.  We have everything to get an outcome.  We want to win."

    Pachuca (1-0-0, 3 points) currently tops the group thanks to a 4-1 win over Real España, while Municipal (0-0-1, 1 point) played the Hondurans to a 1-1 draw.
