    The draw was last night:

    2018 CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 matchups:
    Match dates to be announced.

    Seems a little odd that Toronto drew Colorado in the first round since they are from the same league. I guess the draw must be divided by countries rather than leagues. Good news is at least one MLS team will advance from the first round.

    i'd really like the league to give this competition more support than it gives to summer friendlies with European and SouthAmerican teams.

    How did Colorado even get in? They were the 3rd worst team in MLS this year.

    It's based on prior year results.

    Hadn’t realized until reading HD’s ‘USMNT 2018’ thread that Morris got hurt in El Salvador.

    Toronto & Colorado play second leg in Toronto (up 2-0). TFC has the best chance of an MLS team going deep since that Real Salt Lake squad that barely lost in the Final.

    Good news; Seattle, Toronto, and Energy Drinks advance and they all avoided Mx Prem first place Club America. My buddy is a Chivas fan and says they are a dumpster fire and Seattle should beat them.

    Bad news; Toronto w/tough draw against Tigres, while NY plays mid-table Tijuana. First legs next week.

    This is NOT a typo, after the first leg ALL 3 MLS teams are leading their Mx Prem counterparts. The Energy Drinks became only the 3rd US team to win on Mexican soil, beating TJ 0-2 from a brace by Wright-Phillips and GK Robles standing on his head. Toronto beat Tigres 2-1, and Clint tallied the lone goal in Seattle’s 1-0 win over Chivas.

    Nice wins for MLS. I dvr'd and watched some of each match - Altidore's goal reminded me that he is a big, strong man when he wants to be.

    I watched the last 30 minutes of Toronto and the full Seattle match. I thought Toronto looked like the better team for the 30 minutes. I thought the 1-0 scoreline at Seattle summarized the match nicely outside of missed opportunities. Either team could regret not converting on two pretty good chances each at the end of the next match.

    NY and Toronto play tonight and Seattle plays tomorrow night. All three ahead after leg 1 as mentioned above. NY hosts the second leg while Toronto and Seattle travel to Mexico. Come on you MLS.

    Toronto advance on away goals with a 2-3 (4-4 aggregate) loss to Tigres. Tigres were the better team in this match but couldn't put Toronto away thanks to a little Atomic Ant magic.

    2018 Concacaf Champions League – Quarterfinals, Leg 2

    Unfortunately Lodiero will miss the match due to a foot injury. This on top of already losing Jordan Morris will make holding on in Mexico a difficult proposition. But that is why you play the games. Come on Sounders and make it 3 for 3 to the semi-finals.

    Seattle loses to Chivas 3-0, to quote the singer Meatloaf; '2 out 3 Ain't Bad'. What is bad however is Toronto drew America while NY plays Chivas. It sure would've been nice to have an all-MLS semi, now it's an uphill battle.

    I was hoping for but not expecting a Seattle/Red Bull semi-final match but Seattle were just outplayed last night. Without Lodiero Seattle really didn't have anything going forward and then the Chad Marshall's injury during the match took the heart out of the middle of the defense. Seattle stayed compact and scrapped to try and hold on but when Chivas scored their first off a free kick and Seattle were put into a position of having to score I pretty much knew the match was over.

    The match streams free on Go90. I watched most of the MLS CONCACAF matches in the last round. Not the best quality stream I’ve watched but its not bad.

    The match stream at Go90 was better tonight. It seemed like there were more camera views and the match is worth watching. I think for a period of time you can watch a replay.
