Good evening folks. Tonight marks the start of the CONCACAF Champions Cup semifinals between D.C. United and Pachuca. As you may know, D.C. United’s recent history in the tournament hasn’t been the best. D.C. will look to turn that around tonight with a victory against a Pachuca club that is not as strong as the squad that ousted Houston from last year’s tournament.
Led by forward Luis Rey, midfielder Andres Chitiva and goalkeeper Miguel Calero, Pachuca still packs plenty of punch and will test a D.C. defense that didn’t have the best debut on Saturday against Kansas City.
D.C. United will welcome back Brazilian winger Fred, who was rested against KC for tonight’s match. His dynamic ability on the wing will be key to stretching Pachuca’s defense and creating space for playmaker Marcelo Gallardo to operate.
Tonight’s match is set for 10 p.m. on Fox Soccer Channel. If you will be watching the match, please feel free to following along here and share your thoughts, opinions and view of the action in the comments section below.
Enjoy the soccer!
