Sounders vs. Club León: Highlights, stats and quotes

Sounders create tons of chances in 3-0 win.

The Seattle Sounders have beaten plenty of Liga MX opponents, especially at home. They’ve even scored 3-0 blowouts — as recently as last year. But this was the first time they’ve pulled off such a dominant performance in Concacaf Champions League play. Even more remarkable was that it came against one of Liga MX’s best teams and the scoreline could have been even more dominant than it was.

Of course, the Sounders will now need to finish the job. They play at Leon on March 17.
