It was about six months ago that the Seattle Sounders last faced tonight’s Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals opponent, Club León. The Sounders briefly turned the setback in that Leagues Cup final into some positive play, winning four straight after that disappointing loss, but ultimately stumbled down the stretch and have continued that form into 2022. León, meanwhile, lifted that trophy and then nearly followed up with a Liguilla title, falling just short to Atlas in the Liga MX final, and have continued to be one of the top teams in Mexico during the Clausura.
Maybe this can be another inflection point for the Sounders. Historically, they’ve performed well against Liga MX opponents at home — where they are 5-3-1 in official competitions, including three straight wins.
León come into this one playing well, though. They’re currently on a six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including a 3-0-1 record in Liga MX play.
