CONCACAF Champions Cup Update

Quick hits from Tuesday's CONCACAF Champions Cup:

- Joe Public embarrassed New England Revolution 4-0 to win 6-1 on aggregate, eliminating the Revs. Gregory Richardson scored a quality hat trick to put the Trinidad & Tobago side into Group C. If Richardson is around to put Joe Public into the Champions Cup next year I'll be shocked; he's far too talented not to get snatched up by an MLS squad.

- Chivas USA and Tauro FC drew 1-1 at Home Depot Center but it wasn't enough to keep Chivas from being eliminated 3-1 on aggregate. Now DC United and Houston Dynamo are the only MLS teams in the group stage.

- Montreal Impact, however, have advanced as a scoreless draw against Nicaraguan side Real Esteli gave them a 1-0 aggregate victory.

Tonight's Schedule:

Puerto Rico Islanders vs LD Alajuelense (11PM Eastern on Fox Soccer)
Hankook Verdes vs CD SC Cruz Azul (1AM Eastern on Fox Soccer)
CD Marathon vs AD Isidro Metapan

Update: Puerto Rico vs Alajuelense will be delayed to 1AM Eastern due to weather. The Hancook/Cruz Azul match will be shown live at 11PM.
