Going to start a thread, hopefully this one can be re-used for next year and for all of our teams.

The quarterfinals for the CONCACAF Champions League is set. 3 MLS teams survive and will face 3 of the 4 Liga MX teams.



Seattle came back from losing the first leg 2-1 to winning the series 5-2 on aggregate, thanks to four second-half goals. Also, Santa Tecla are the most Central American team ever, in terms of playstyle.


I attended the match, since it was a weeknight and the tickets were super cheap (only $7 for two seats a few rows above the field). About 30,000 people, which is phenomenal compared to the showings in New Jersey and Dallas.

It's rather nice seeing all three MLS teams win their first (of two) quarterfinal matches in the Champions League! Including the Red Bulls getting the away victory in Tijuana!

The Sounders did well not to concede an away goal, but should have finished their sitters. And the ref should have called that PK.

How was the attendance and ticket prices? Was there a big Chivas fan presence?
Attendance was 42,885, beating the Club America match from 2016. Ticket prices looked to be the normal for a single match, and it was included in season ticket packages. Chivas presence was very noticeable on TV, especially on the east side of the stadium.
