USA

  • Columbus (Group Stage)
  • Houston (Group Stage)
  • New York (Preliminary Stage)
  • D.C. United (Preliminary Stage)

Mexico

  • Deportivo Toluca (Group Stage)
  • Cruz Azul (Preliminary Stage)

After 12 of 17 rounds in the Clausura, the top 8 are Deportivo Toluca, Pachuca, Puebla, Universidad Nacional, Monterrey, Chiapas, Atlas, and Club América.  If form holds, Pachuca and Puebla would be the top 2 teams favored to qualify.  Cruz Azul is in 16th place, and looks like they won’t be a factor.

Toluca and Pachuca, and Universidad Nacional and Puebla will both be meeting on Sunday in major games.

Costa Rica

  • Saprissa

After 12 of 16 rounds, CS Herediano, Saprissa, AD Ramonense, Pérez Zeledón, CS Cartaginés, and Puntarenas F.C/Liberia Mia would make the playoff, with CS Herediano favored to win the playoff and grab the 2nd Champions League spot.

CS Cartaginés and CS Herediano will play a game on Thursday that will have a major impact on the table and could but CS Herediano 5 points clear at the top. CS Cartaginés would move within 2 points and into a tie for 2nd with a win. AD Ramonense and Liberia Mia, and Pérez Zeledón and Saprissa will play big matches on Sunday.

Honduras

  • Marathon

After 14 of 18 rounds, Olimpia, Marathón, Real España, and Victoria are in qualifying position.  Olimpia is the favorite to get the 2nd qualifying spot.

The next set of matches are on April 16th-20th.

Those matches will see Marathón take on Platense (who is tied for 4th but loses on Goal Differential) on the 16th, and Olimpia play Real España on the 19th.

Guatemala

  • Comunicaciones

After 10 of 18 rounds, Municipal, Jalapa, Deportivo Heredia, Deportivo Zacapa, Club Xelajú MC, and Deportivo Suchitepéquez/Comunicaciones are in qualifying position.  Municipal is the favorite to get the 2nd qualifying spot.

On the 8th Heredia will take on Deportivo Suchitepéque, while Jalapa and Deportivo Zacapa will meet on the 9th.

El Salvador

  • Isidro Metapán

After 11 of 18 rounds, Isidro Metapán, Luis Angel Firpo, Club Deportivo Águila, and Nejapa are in qualifying position.  Isidro Metapán is the favorite to win the playoff, and Luis Angel Firpo is in position to get the 2nd qualifying spot.

Club Deportivo Águila and Nejapa will meet on the 9th.

Panama

  • Árabe Unido

After 5 of 18 rounds, Tauro FC, Chorrillo F.C., Atlético Chiriqui, and Atlético Veragüense are in qualifying position.  Tauro FC is the favorite to win the playoff, and Árabe Unido is in 9th place at this point.

Alianza F.C. met Atlético Chiriqui on Sunday and would have moved into the playoff position with a win. Don’t know who won that game yet.

Nicaragua

In the hexagonal, where the top 4 teams will move on, after 2 of 6 rounds, Real Estelí, Deportivo Walter Ferretti, Xilotepelt, and Diriangén FC are in position to move on.

Sunday featured a matchup between Real Estelí and Xilotepelt, but I haven’t seen a score.
