A Honduras Win

Marvin Chaves and Milton Nunez scored to give Honduras side Marathon a 2-0 win over Saprissa on Wednesday and end the Costa Rican’s chances of advancing to the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals.

Marathon, which had already earned its quarterfinals berth heading into the match, ends the group stage on 13 points atop Group A, three points ahead of Mexico’s Cruz Azul and Saprissa on 10 each.

The top two teams from each group advance, and Cruz Azul leads Saprissa 4-1 on head-to-head aggregate scores.

Chaves scored on a left-foot shot in the 11th minute before Nunez sealed the win when he eluded several defenders to find the net in the 75th.
