Municipal keep Champions League hopes alive

BAYAMON, October 24 (Concacaf Champions League) - Guatemalan side Municipal kept alive their hopes of reaching the Concacaf Champions League's quarter-finals with a 1-0 away win over Puerto Rico Islanders on Thursday.

Mario Acevedo scored the only goal five minutes from time as the visitors claimed their first win in Group D to move up to five points, two behind Puerto Rico and Panamanian side Tauro.

The result also assured group leaders Santos Laguna of Mexico of a place in the last eight ahead of next week's final round of group matches when Tauro host Puerto Rico and Santos visit Municipal.

Three other teams have already booked their place in the quarter-finals after five rounds of group stage matches.

Pumas of Mexico secured their place from Group B with a 3-1 win over Houston Dynamo on Wednesday while Montreal Impact and Club Atlante of Mexico have taken the two available spots in Group C.
