Deportivo Saprissa won its 37th title in Costa Rican soccer on Saturday despite losing, 1-0, to Club Sport Herediano in the second leg of the final of the 2022 Apertura Tournament, thanks to a 2-0 win in the first leg.
The previous Sunday’s victory left a 2-1 aggregate score in favor of the S, which, as usual, celebrated once again.
The goal by Herediano’s Jefferson Brenes (8) made the game an uphill struggle for Saprissa, who also suffered the removal of Kendall Waston (36), their defensive star and scorer of five goals in the campaign.
Herediano was unable to due much even though they clearly dominated their opponents, who were able to weather the barrage brought on by Herediano. And in the second half, Saprissa was able to control the Heredians enough to seal the title.
With this championship, Saprissa’s technical director, Jeaustin Campos, became the most title-winning coach in Costa Rican soccer, with seven.
Saprissa won its 37th title, while Alajuelense has 30 and Herediano has 29.
