Real Salt Lake will look to take a major step toward becoming the first MLS team to win the CONCACAF Champions League title by gaining a favorable result tonight against Monterrey in Mexico in the first leg of their two-game Championship series (10pm, Fox Soccer Channel)
Monterrey, Mexican champions in two of the past three Mexican seasons, will look to keep RSL from registering any road goals, while also trying to put some goals past a stingy Real Salt Lake defense. Monterrey enters the match having struggled a bit in league play, having gone winless in four straight, but as we learned in the RSL semifinal series against Saprissa, a team struggling in league play won't necessarily have the same issues in Champions League play.
RSL will look to become the first MLS team in 24 tries to win a competitive match in Mexico, though a draw would set things up nicely for Real Salt Lake's second leg at Rio Tinto Stadium.
