Chivas de Guadalajara picked up a 3-0 win against the Seattle Sounders in the second leg of their 2018 CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series, which puts El Rebaño into the semifinals with a 3-1 aggregate victory.
Chivas needed to score in this one after falling 1-0 in the first leg, and they tested goalkeeper Stefan Frei early. Javier López had the first chance for the hosts following a cross from Rodolfo Pizarro, but the ball went straight to the keeper.
The Seattle Sounders made their home-field advantage count as they picked up a 1-0 victory against Chivas de Guadalajara in the first leg of their 2018 CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series.
The game was an end-to-end affair in the early stages as both teams looked to open the scoring. Alejandro Mayorga forced an early save out of Stefan Frei before Clint Dempsey tested Rodolfo Cota at the other end.
Club América became the third Liga MX team to book a spot in the semifinals of the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champions League with a 3-1 (5-3 aggregate) victory against the Seattle Sounders.

The semifinalists of the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champions League will be determined this week, with four teams from Major League Soccer and four from Liga MX playing the second legs of their quarterfinal series.
These are total goals, aggregate-score series; away goals are tiebreakers. If the aggregate and away goals are tied at the end of the second leg, the game will go to overtime and then a penalty shootout if needed. Away goals do not count as tiebreakers if scored in overtime.
The first leg results were:
Querétaro 2-0 DC United
Seattle Sounders 2-2 América
Tigres UANL 2-0 Real Salt Lake
LA Galaxy 0-0 Santos Laguna
The Seattle Sounders twice took the lead and twice failed to hold it as they drew 2-2 with Club América in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series. The draw gives América the slight advantage going into the second leg thanks to their two away goals.

However, Seattle soon adjusted to the pace of the game and before long it became an end-to-end affair with both Stefan Frei and Hugo González – starting in place of the injured Moisés Muñoz – called into action.
