Club América safely navigated their way out of Group 8 in the CONCACAF Champions League after a 2-0 win over Guatemalan side, Comunicaciones in the Estadio Azteca. The better news is that Mexico international, Oribe Peralta looked sharp and was back among the goals. Las Aguilas will be hoping that he is hitting form at just the right time of the season.
The two sides drew 1-1 when they met in Guatemala earlier in the group and so this last group fixture was a winner takes all affair. Antonio Mohamed’s side ran out deserved winners as Peralta netted either side of half time.
With the group stages not yet complete it is unknown who América will face in the knockout stages but with 10 points from the possible 12, they should be one of the top seeds.
Club América 2 – 0 Comunicaciones
