- CONCACAF Champions League, Joe Public, Tauro
Not a good night for Major League Soccer on the international scene. Two games on foreign soil and two very ugly losses.
Chivas loses in Panama to Tauro 2-0.
New England loses in Trindad to Jack Warner’s Joe Public 2-1.
MLS clubs lost games to very small clubs. Not the big boys of CONCACAF like Pachuca or Olimpia, but teams that play in front of maybe 2,000 people on a good night.
Now, its not the end of the world for the Revs and the American Goats; they still get to host the second legs next week. New England is probably in better shape to advance to the group stage than Chivas is at this point. The Revs at least picked up a goal on the road in their 2-1 loss.
What did you all make of this opening round to the new CONCACAF tournament? Like it so far or are you just disappointed to not see the MLS clubs fair better on the road?
