New, 3 comments

After the first two rounds of the six match Group Stage the Sounders are officially in last. While not yet eliminated they now are almost certain to need at least one win on the road. Though two road draws and two home wins could do it too, though highly unlikely.

Here's the current table

Away Goals are a tie breaker, so that Roger Levesque Goal was important.

Here are all the tie-breakers per CONCACAF

Greater number of points earned in matches between the teams

Greater number of goals scored away from home in matches between
Reapply first three criteria if two or more teams are still tied
Greater goal difference in all group matches
Greater number of goals scored in group matches
Greater number of goals scored away in all group Matches Drawing of lots

It will be a tough road out of the Group Stage now, but let's remember where we thought the Sounders were at the 50% mark of their League Season.

Top Goal Scorers from the Group are;

Claudio Cardozo with 4 goals for Marathon so far (includes Prelims), he's tied for 2nd in the tourney.
Aldo de Nigris with 2 goals for Monterrey is the only other with more than a goal.
