A day after the Columbus Crew became the latest MLS team to fall to Mexican opposition in Mexico (and fall victim to questionable officiating), Real Salt Lake will look to become the first team in league history to win an official match on Mexican soil when it faces Cruz Azul tonight (8pm, Fox Soccer Channel).
Real Salt Lake opened its CONCACAF Champions League group stage campaign with a victory against Arabe Unido, but today's match at Estadio Azul will provide a much tougher test. There is also the history of Mexican dominance over MLS (with Mexican clubs holding an 18-0-2 record at home against MLS team).
Tonight features two MLS vs. FMF tilts, as the Seattle Sounders play host to Mexican side Monterrey at Qwest Field. The Sounders need a win at home today to avoid an 0-2 start in group play.
The Puerto Rico Islanders are also in action tonight, playing host to CD FAS in Puerto Rico.

Enjoy the action.
