The Columbus Crew and Seattle Sounders will look to erase the disappointments of their last CONCACAF Champions League matches by posting victories in group stage action tonight.
The Crew takes on Joe Public tonight at Crew Stadium (8pm, Fox Soccer Channel) while the Sounders face CD Municipal (10pm, Fox Soccer Channel).
If you will be watching tonight's matches, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.
Enjoy the action.
Sure there is move to a place where people want to see the game instead of hemorrhaging money. It isn’t just CCL, it’s regular season games. Sadly our league, unlike the Mexican league, needs all the butts in those seats. Again no need to be defensive.
The point is people go to see what they want to see, Rob. There is no special trick to ‘making’ attendance grow. What we want to see is the association footbal- not the vague shadows of bodies in the background.
Simple, we are not in Mexico, quit getting so defensive
i didnt make the comment here, but did so on FB, but i was surprised how empty Saprissa was
Are you in marketing?
Why does no one comment on the stands in Mexico and Central America? None of these games- with rare exceptions- are especially well attended.
Wasn’t as bad as Unido at RSL.
Studs up is straight red every time i hear about it.
believe it or not, most people prefer early nights during the work/schoolweek. Especially parents.
Riiiiight. You’ve seen all the “games” in CONCACAF. Get real.
Not even a Seattle fan.
Exactly how is it “karma”? Saprissa is a joke of a diving team, let alone a soccer team… wow.
Yep, pretty much as good as it gets as far as referees go and he showed it today.
just flat out dumb… holding your leg up and putting studs into the defender…
Perhaps the best ref in CONCACAF…the correct call on that red…like it or not…ref’d in the past two World Cups including the semi-final in 2006 in Germany….
Seattle has no one to blame but themselves tonight….
Between the time wasting by the keeper, studs up tackles and diving, Seattle deserved to lose this game
seattle gonna need a miracle now
goodbye seattle. thanks for playing.
That red card really f’ed Seattle (not saying it was a bad call). 2-0 Saprissa
That is what we call in the biz “the nail in the coffin”
not a dive, but more of a “taking a charge” in the nba. He came in and montero dragged his foot to create the contact. It’s a good play by him, but he could have avoided it.
Yeah i thought it was a legit red honestly.
Wow, quite a few Sounders fans at the stadium. Bravo.
i wouldnt say that really was a dive, defender slid at him in the box so clumsily
Why the heck is Alonso taking the PK?
That was so incredibly illegal.
The goalkeeper was 3 yards off the goal line on the penalty! Of course the official allows it.
oh wtf Alonso
i suppose karma does exist, seatle misses
Beautiful dive by Montero!!!!and the miss by Alonso. I get the feeling it’s the referees fault somehow.
Christ, how far was that goalkeeper off the line
montero with the footdrag and a PK, he definitely tried to get the foul, but it worked that time. Stupid, stupid play by saprissa.
The official just allowed a free kick with a free ball already in the 18…
Where is that Montero guy everybody keeps talking about. I watched the Seattle/Monterrey game and he was invisible at that one also.
That looked like USMNT defending right there.
Well taken shot by Saprissa player. 1-0
Waaaw Saprissa should have scored there
Ball just got caught under his feet, he definetly shaped to shoot just couldn’t get it off.
Diving like woah.
Having just seen the red card replay i am unconvinced. It seems a bit harsh. Yellow would probably have been fine. I am not saying there isn’t a case for a red card, because I think there is, just seemed a hit harsh.
lol, i was thinking the same thing about Zakuani…. how did he not shoot that
