I’m looking forward to this one. DC are in Santiago tonight to take on Universidad Catolica. DC are in Santiago tonight to take on Universidad Catolica. I just hope they do better than their last Champions Cup matches against UNAM Pumas. They drew the first leg at home 1-1 (like they did against Catolica a couple weeks ago) and then got smacked in Mexico City 5-0 by Hugo Sanchez’s side.
DC are without Jamil Walker which doesn’t help their cause much either. However, regardless of the result, it’s a step forward for MLS as a whole. My hope is that eventually we’ll see more of these “real” matches against international competition. Maybe one day an MLS side will prevail outside of the US.
