Liga MX clubs have never overcome a more-than two goal deficit against MLS sides

Seattle Sounders had an impeccable performance on Tuesday night in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League against Club León at Lumen Field. Fredy Montero scored a brace in the first half and Jordan Morris in stoppage time to seal the 3-0 victory for the Major League Soccer side.

León against history

No Liga MX club has overcome a more than two goal difference in the history of the continental campaign and León will need a perfect performance to advance to the next round. The Mexican side will host the Sounders on 17 March for the second leg, but it seems impossible because of the recent history in the tournament.

During the 2018 campaign, New York Red Bulls defeated Tijuana 2-0 in the first leg and in the second leg they won 3-1. In that same year, Club América lost 3-1 to Toronto FC in the first leg and the second leg ended in a 1-1 draw.

Then in the 2020 edition of the Concachampions, LAFC eliminated Club León after the Liga MX side had won 2-0 in the first leg, but in the second leg the MLS side won 3-0 at the Banc of California stadium. In that same tournament, Los Angeles FC eliminated Club América 3-1 on aggregate to advance to the final, where they lost to Tigres UANL 1-0.
