Since CONCACAF redesigned the Champions Cup into the Champions League MLS sides have struggled. Except for one, and with even a poor performance tonight they could still advance to the CCL final. They face former Sounders opponent Saprissa, down in Costa Rica, but start with a two goal advantage and no away goals against.
To get an MLS side in the CCL Final would be pretty big, or it should be, if more people cared about non-League soccer in America. For that reason I am kind of rooting for RSL (plus more non-League matches could harm their run in League play). Here in Seattle we have the advantage that Real Salt Lake is NOT a rival. In Colorado they are not on the #MLS4RSL bandwagon. Colorado is though, and there they will be rooting for RSL to fail. With no coefficients determining entries in future tournaments it makes sense.
