Cartaginés earned a 4-2 victory against Isidro Metapan on Thursday in a battle of the LA Galaxy’s CONCACAF Champions’ League Group 8 opponents.  

Costa Rican international Pablo Herrera led the way for Los Brumosos with three goals while Andre Flores added a fourth in the victory. The Salvadorans got on the board through an own goal by defender Esteban Sirias and a goal by Panamanian forward Nicolas Muñoz.

The game took place at the Estadio Cuscatlán in San Salvador, El Salvador as Metapan were unable to host the match at their home field of the Estadio Jorge Calero Suarez due to field concerns.  

LA open the CCL on Aug. 20  against the Costa Rican side at StubHub Center.
