The San Jose Earthquakes and Montreal Impact will face off in group stage action in the 2013/2014 CONCACAF Champions League group stages.
The Champions League group draw took place on Monday night and didn’t quite go according to plan. The initial draw saw the Houston Dynamo drawn against Club Tijuana and the Los Angeles Galaxy drawn vs. Cruz Azul, but CONCACAF rules prevent MLS teams and Liga MX teams from meeting in the group stages.
CONCACAF eventually fixed the problem, and moved the Dynamo and Cruz Azul into new groups.
The winner of each three-team group advances to the knockout round, which takes place in 2014.
Here is the 2013/2014 CONCACAF Champions League group draw:
GROUP 1– Arabe Unido, Houston Dynamo, W Connection.
GROUP 2– CD Olimpia, Sporting KC, Real Esteli.
GROUP 3– Herediano, Cruz Azul, Valencia FC.
GROUP 4– Club America, Alajuelense, Sporting San Miguelito
GROUP 5– San Jose Earthquakes, Montreal Impact, Guatemala 2nd team.
GROUP 6– CSD Comunicaciones, Toluca, Caledonia FC.
GROUP 7– Club Tijuana, CD Victoria, San Luis Firpo
GROUP 8– LA Galaxy, Isidro Metapan, Club Sport Cartagines
