Gerardo Tata Martino gives his Liga MX favorite to win the Concacaf Champions League – La Opinion


Gerardo “Tata” Martino is close to elimination from the Concacaf Champions League and the Argentine revealed who the favorite is to win the competition and it is from Liga MX.

The Argentine stated that Inter Miami has a difficult path even if they qualify against Monterrey.

“In this type of competition, if we have the possibility of going to Monterrey, Tigres or the MLS champion will probably come, and If you are lucky enough to pass that, you will get America, which is the favorite in my opinion,” commented the Miami coach.

América achieved a 4-0 victory against New England Revolution in the first leg of the quarterfinals and looks like a great candidate to win the title.

Tata Martino affirms that wear and tear takes its toll

After the 2-1 defeat against Monterrey, Martino highlighted that the wear and tear they have suffered has taken its toll during the season.

“Having a reduction in the roster is not appropriate and I don’t know if I should attribute it exclusively to the wear and tear of the preseason trips. We lacked legs to play the last 20 minutes, playing against Monterrey demands wear and tear and playing with one less man is greater,” added the helmsman after the match held in Fort Lauderdale.

Regarding Messi, the Argentine coach continues to affirm that he is recovering, but that there was a very big risk for the first leg.

“He goes game by game, it wasn’t a game for him to be in, he isn’t ready, that’s how it will be for Colorado and the return game with Monterrey, He feels better every day, today we were taking too big a risk,” Martino added.

Tano Ortiz wants Messi to return

Rayados’ coach, Fernando Ortiz, does not hide his admiration for Messi and his desire to see him on the field again, even against them in the return match.

“I admire Leo, I have said it and I say it again, I continue to observe him and I continue to admire him. I would like to face him but I am interested in my team winning. We expected him to play today, he is the best player in the world of all times. I hope I can be back and be able to enjoy it,” he stated.
