Guastayota has been champion of the Guatemalan National League three times (Clausura and Apertura 2018 and Apertura 2020). The team known as Pecho Amarillos were founded just in 2015 and play their home games at the David Cordón stadium with a capacity of 3100 fans.

The Mexican squad is looking to advance to the next stage of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League without struggling. The bets are in favor of Ariel Holan’s team but they must show why they are the runners-up of the Liga MX. León are currently in twelfth place in the Liga MX and have not had a good start to the season.

Guastatoya and its Concachampions record 

There is no record between the two clubs, but the so-called Pecho Amarillo, a club originally from the departmental capital of El Progreso, will have the opportunity to play in the CONCACAF Champions League for the second time in its history.

Guastatoya's debut was in 2019, after qualifying for the tournament as the winner of the playoff against Antigua GFC, and in its first participation, Guastatoya faced the MLS outfit Houston Dynamo of the United States in the round of 16. The MLS team won the round of 16 with a 3-1 aggregate score.

For this new edition of the Concachampions, the winner between Guastatoya and León will advance to the quarterfinals, where the opponent will be the winner between Seattle Sounders and Motagua.

The failures are countless, among them, the following can be listed: 

Concacaf 1993: lost first place in a four-team playoff when they lost to Saprissa of Costa Rica.

Concacaf 1998: They were eliminated in the semifinals by DC United, a team from the MLS.

Copa Libertadores 2013 and 2014: Eliminated in the playoffs by Deportes Iquique and Bolivar in the round of 16. 

Concacaf 2014: Eliminated in the group stage by Herediano of Costa Rica.
