Monterrey traveled to Haiti and earned a 0-3 win against Don Bosco in the opening match of Group D in the 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League. The Haitians were making their CCL debut and they were unable to stand up to the Rayados, who made short work of them.
Edwin Cardona got Monterrey on the board just two minutes into the match; Aldo de Nigris sent in a cross and Cardona got his head to it to make it 0-1.
That goal rather took the wind out of Don Bosco’s sails, and in the 17th minute Yimmi Chara made it 0-2 when he sent his diagonal shot past the goalkeeper to finish off some good team play.
Just before the halftime whistle, De Nigris made it 0-3. Cardona’s initial shot crashed against the crossbar, but the rebound fell nicely for De Nigris, who put it away.
With the 0-3 win, Monterrey reaches three points while Don Bosco remains on zero.
