United Fall Short
A bitter disappointment I must admit for those of us hoping for a deep run from MLS’ lone representative in the competition. United fought valiantly but was eliminated 2-2 on away goals. I can’t help but wonder how ironic it is that this event used the away goal rule which could have advanced Houston instead of Pachuca in the Champions Cup. DC United outshot Chivas and seemed to have the better of the play but couldn’t break Chivas in the final third and thus has been eliminated.
