Tauro FC is making its fifth appearance in the CONCACAF Champions League – the most of any Panamanian team — after winning the 2013 Apertura. Israel Sanjur scored the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over San Francisco in the final. It was Tauro’s 12th domestic championship, a national record. The club’s colors are black and white in honor of Italian powerhouse Juventus, the favorite team of founder Giancarlo Gronchi. Coached by Rolando Palma, Tauro features Panamanian international defender Carlos Rodriguez, who was called up for pre-FIFA World Cup friendlies against Serbia and Brazil. Tauro, which is hoping to advance out of the Group Stage for the first time, was drawn into Group 4 with D.C. United (USA) and Waterhouse (Jamaica).
