The Houston Dynamo and Seattle Sounders both went on the road in CONCACAF Champions League group action on Thursday night and both are coming back to the USA with points in the bag.
The Sounders sent a young squad to Trinidad & Tobago and came back with an impressive 3-1 win over Caledonia AIA courtesy of goals from Fredy Montero, Alex Caskey and Sammy Ochoa. Montero was one of the stars of the match, delivering an assist on the opener and scoring an insurance goal in a game that gave Seattle six points through its two Group 4 games.
The Dynamo did not grab three points, but they were able to draw despite playing with 10 men for nearly half-an-hour. Adam Moffat scored an equalizing goal in the 57th minute, but shortly thereafter Nathan Sturgis was sent off for a stomp. Houston, however, still managed to hold firm defensively and it claimed a point that gives them four in Group 3 through two matches.
What do you think of the Sounders and Dynamo grabbing points on the road? Expecting both to get out of their groups? Which team do you think has a better shot at making a deep run?
