Please, Seattle and Real Salt Lake, do us a solid by representing MLS well on Wednesday.
One night after DC United and L.A. Galaxy flopped out of the CONCACAF Champions League with just a goal between them, the Sounders and RSL have to pull off tricky results against Liga MX competition to get to the semis.
Club America vs. Seattle Sounders — FOLLOW LIVE (8 p.m. ET)
If we get a match anything like the first leg, well, that would be awesome. Clint Dempsey‘s had some success in Mexico, and scored a pair against Club America in the first leg. But the champs will be happy to be home at Estadio Azteca with a pair of road goals. Buckle your seat belts.
Real Salt Lake vs. Tigres UANL — FOLLOW LIVE (10 p.m. ET)
RSL is in a tough spot, down 2-0 having not scored a road goal in the first leg. Nick Rimando was outstanding in Mexico, stopping a penalty before Tigres broke through late. Now, they need to do a lot of work.
