Canada's club champion Vs.....

The draw for the preliminary draw of the CONCACAF Champions League was held today. The winner of the three way tournament between TFC, Montreal and Vancouver will match-up against the Nicaraguan champion.

Who would that be, you ask?

From the CONCACAF page:
Real Esteli FC, who won Nicaragua’s 2007 Campeonato Nacional de Apertura, are in fourth place (27 Points) in the 2008 Clausura eight points behind the leader Deportivo Ocotal with 35, while Deportivo Walter Ferreti and Diriangen FC tied for second-place, with 33 Points . All four teams have secured places in the semifinals after 16 match dates. The winner of the Clausura will meet Real Esteli FC in a two-game playoff to determine NCA1 spot. If Real Esteli win the Clausura title, then they automatically earn NCA1 place.

So, there ya go.

It's a winnable game.
