Saprissa took a 54th-minute lead away from home as Ramirez chipped a stranded Carlos Mendez to make it 1-0

Umana sealed the points from the penalty spot on 89 minutes



At the Estadio Lito Perez, Herediano took the lead on the hour-mark



Yendrick Ruiz delightfully flicked in a cross, but the visitors were unable to hold on for three points
