Raise your hands if you were a D.C. fan worried about advancing in the Champions Cup. D.C. made it look easy in posting a 5-0 win against Harbour View on Tuesday. Luciano Emilio and Devon McTavish (yes, Devon McTavish) netted a brace each to push D.C. to the Champions Cup semifinals against the winner of the Pachuca-CD Motagua series, which concludes tonight after a 0-0 tie in its first game.
While Emilio and McTavish scored the goals, Brazilian midfielder Fred enjoyed a stellar performance, scoring a goal and setting up another.
MLS can make it two for two tonight if Houston can beat CD Municipal in the second leg of their series. Houston tied the Guatamalan club, 0-0, in the first leg in central America. Kickoff is set for 8:30pm (FSC).
What did you think of last night’s performance? If you’re a D.C. fan are you feeling better about the season? Still waiting for Marcelo Gallardo to sprinkle gold dust? Would you rather face Pachuca or Amado Guevara’s CD Motagua? Share your thoughts below.
