Quick CCL update after Thursday’s games

ccl logo.jpgUPDATE: 9:50 p.m. — I’ve updated these from after Thursday’s games.

Things are getting a bit messy in the final round of the CONCACAF Champions League group stage when it comes to quarterfinal seeding. I doubt I’ll be able to explain anything easily and probably don’t have an accurate understanding anyways.

Either way, here’s an update after Tuesday’s games as we start to look ahead to the quarterfinal round. Remember, the eight group winners are seeded based on performance starting with points, then goal differential, then goals scored (full standings here and rules here in case it’s too confusing):

Qualified and done playing

No. 1 Monterrey (Mexico), Group 7 — 12 points, +15 goal differential, 15 goals scored

No. 2 Santos Laguna (Mexico), Group 1 — 12 points, +12 goal differential, 13 goals scored

No. 3 Sounders FC (MLS), Group 4 — 12 points, +7 goal differential, 12 goals scored

No. 4 LA Galaxy (MLS), Group 5 — 10 points, +8 goal differential, 12 goals scored

No. 5 Herediano (Costa Rica), Group 2 — 10 points, +3 goal differential, 4 goals scored

No. 6 Tigres UNAL (Mexico), Group 6 — 8 points, +9 goal differential, 12 goals scored

No. 7 Houston (MLS), Group 3 — 8 points, +6 goal differential, 9 goals scored

No. 8 Xelaju (Guatemala), Group 8 — 7 points, +1 goal differential, 7 goals scored
