D.C., Houston host important Champions League matches tonight

HOU_DYN_LOGO2008_017

Two massive CONCACAF Champions League matches loom tonight for the remaining two MLS squads in the competition. D.C., in need of a win to boost their chances of making a rather unlikely quarterfinal bid, face lowly San Juan Jabloteh (8pm, FSC) of Trinidad & Tobago who have yet to win in the competition.

United will have to do it with a number of players unavailable through suspension and injury — Jaime Moreno, Dejan Jakovic and Avery John are all suspended, while Bryan Namoff (concussion) and Josh Wicks (dislocated shoulder, sprained knee) are hurt.

Down south in Houston, Pachuca comes to town with much at stake for the Dynamo (10pm, FSC). Houston's record is much more impressive than D.C.'s but thanks to a much more competitive group, three points is almost a must tonight. Anything less than a win would leave Houston relying on other results, though they do have Metapan, winless in the group, left on the schedule.

Think either Houston or D.C. can get the win tonight? Can either make the quarterfinals?
