Andres Romero - Montreal Impact
Canada Soccer / François Mellet
Heredia (4-4-2): Calderon; Medina, Arias, Garcia, Velsquez; Espinoza, de Matta, Andrade, Cordoba; Lopez, Miranda

Montreal Impact (4-4-2): Bush; Brovsky, Ferrari, Lopez, Camara; Romero, Arnaud, Warner, Nyassi; Paponi, Wenger.

  • Montreal won its first match of the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League by a 1-0 scoreline over fellow MLS side San Jose Earthquakes.
  • The Impact have elected to leave key veterans Marco DiVaio, Alessandro Nesta, and Patrice Bernier at home. The next MLS match for Montreal is a clash with Eastern Conference foes Houston Dynamo on Saturday.
  • Montreal is participating in its second Champions League. The Impact previously made it to the quarterfinal stage of the 2008-09 tournament as a second division side.
  • Wednesday night will mark Heredia's first ever Champions League match. The club qualified for the continental competition as the team with the second-best aggregate record in Guatemala's domestic league behind Comunicaciones.
  • Heredia is currently in fifth place in its league after three matches.
  • The game is taking place at Estadio Cementos Progreso in Guatemala City -- the home of Comunicaciones -- rather than Heredia's normal home stadium.
