A nice Tuesday evening for soccer here at CenturyLink Field. The Toronto FC-Tauro game is up on the big screen; I wish it was Monterrey-Comunicaciones, but I’ll keep an eye on that one.
If Monterrey wins its 5 p.m. match, Sounders FC will not be assured qualification into the CONCACAF Champions League regardless of its result tonight against Herediano.
Coach Sigi Schmid has stressed an emphasis on home games in this competition so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some starters get the nod today. Lineups will be available around 6:15 p.m. and I’ll update this post accordingly.
