    Looks like the US clubs will be crashing out of the Champions’s League just like their English counterparts! No way they keep those Mexican clubs scoreless south of the border

  2. Mike says:

    I would not describe a 1 – 0 win going into an away second leg as ‘commanding’.

      I was looking to see where it may have noted that they won 1-0 on the road. Indeed, not very commanding, but best of luck to them on the 2nd leg.
