Quarterfinal Leg One

Seattle Sounders FC 2
Club Santos Laguna 1
March 7, 2012
Seattle, WA - CLink Field
CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinal First Leg

US based pro clubs beating Mexican clubs is never going to get old and never should be taken for granted.

That is SUPER Cyan to you.

On a cold Wednesday night in early March the attendance figure I read was 23,433. So, Seattle drew more than most of the newer MLS stadiums hold.

This was a good game between two good teams where the stats are really balanced and one team made one more play than the other did. There were stretches where each team clearly was in control and the goals were legit.

The February 7, 2008 posting looking forward to the Champions League format before Seattle had kicked a single ball as an MLS club seemed far fetched at the time ...
