Comunicaciones advances to Guatemalan league despite loss to Xelaju

Guatemala City, Dec 10 (efe-epa).- Marco Pappa and Edgar Macal scored goals for Xelaju in its 2-0 win over the weekend against Comunicaciones, which still advanced to the Guatemalan league final.

Comunicaciones, managed by Uruguayan Willy Coito, had won the first leg of the series 4-1.

Xelaju went on the attack early in Sunday's match, but it was not enough to overcome its aggregate points deficit.

"We scored two goals in the second half, but it was not enough in the end. I think we gave it our all. The idea was to flip the series or finish with our heads held high, and I think we did," Macal told reporters after the match.

Guastatoya will host Comunicaciones on Wednesday in the first leg of the final.
