Sounders vs. Motagua: Highlights, stats and quotes

Sounders score resounding 5-0 win to qualify for CCL quarterfinals.

After about 120 minutes of scoreless play, the Seattle Sounders broke out in a major way on Thursday. From the time Nicolás Lodeiro scored the opener in the 33rd minute until Léo Chú scored the capper in the 76th minute, the Sounders were about as dominant as they’ve ever been and frankly looked like they might score even more.

As it was, the 5-0 win was not only their most lopsided aggregate-goal victory in Concacaf Champions League, it also marked the biggest blowout for a MLS team in the knockout stage of this tournament. Cristian Roldan, Jordan Morris and Kelyn Rowe also got on the scoreboard to send the Sounders to a quarterfinal matchup with Liga MX’s Club León.
