Last night, Real Salt Lake got an early leg up on the Seattle Sounders to the tune of 3-0. It’s a big deficit for the league’s second ranked team to make up on their home leg. The LA Galaxy will hope to avoid a similar trap when things kick off in New Jersey.
Seattle follows a trend in MLS. Since Champions League expanded its format in 2008, teams in the group stage have been beaten by those not in the group stage at a 10-12 clip. The Galaxy will need to show their depth if they’re gonna make it through this tie.
