To sprinkle over the more detailed game review:
Stage Two of Operation Make Jorge Vergara Sad is Complete
Chivas de Guadalajara3 - 1
Chivas USA2 - 1
- Saprissa ? - ?
- With the win, the Sounders' odds of winning the Cup actually dropped — from 12.7% to 11.9%. This is a consequence of the screwed up MLS playoff system, where winning means the Sounders earn the right to face LA Galaxy instead of Columbus. But I don't think anyone will begrudge a percentage point here or there in exchange for a happy post-victory weekend.
- That's a nice lookin streak you got there. The Sounders have now won 5 league games in a row. Only RSL had accomplished that feat this season. No team has won 6 in a row (yet). In their last 13 games, the Sounders have 32 points, a rate of almost 2 and a half points per game. Only the Galaxy have put up an equal number of points in 13 games, when they opened the season with 12 undefeated.
