Mexican clubs sweep MLS on wild night in CONCACAF Champions League

By

Real Salt Lake looked set to end the curse, ready to become the first MLS team to win a competitive match on Mexican soil after 20 failed attempts. Up two goals with three minutes to go, RSL had a win in the bag.

Nobody told Cruz Azul.

The Mexican club rattled off three straight goals to take a 4-3 lead, then found one more goal to cancel out a Will Johnson equalizer in a 5-4 victory at Estadio Azul.

The stirring comeback highlighted a forgettable night for MLS clubs, with the Seattle Sounders being outplayed in a 2-0 loss to Monterrey at Qwest Field.

The losses dropped MLS to 0-4 in group play this week after a promising 3-1 start last week. Real Salt Lake's defeat dropped the club into a four-way tie in Group A, while Seattle fell to 0-2 with two road games up next on the schedule.

In cased you missed the fireworks in Mexico, or Seattle's loss to Monterrey, here are the highlights for both matches:

CRUZ AZUL 5, REAL SALT LAKE 4

MONTERREY 2, SEATTLE SOUNDERS 0

What did you think of Wednesday's matches? Still can't believe RSL lost? Disappointed with Seattle's performance? Starting to wonder if an MLS team will ever win in Mexico?
