The Seattle Sounders proved to be no match for Rubens Sambueza and Club America in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals.

The MLS club fell, 3-1, in the second leg of their series vs. America, bouncing out of the 2016 tournament after a 5-3 aggregate loss.

The Sounders entered Estadio Azteca level, 2-2, on aggregate, and so they needed a road win or high-scoring tie to earn the victory in the series.

Only one minute after Osvaldo Alonso crossed it to Nelson Haedo Valdez, who looked to flick it into a Club America player's butt for the goal (ruled on own goal for now) Club America struck.

With the 2-2 result in leg one Seattle will need to win, or earn a draw with at least two goals scored for each side. But, as the final answer in three questions points out, Estadio Aztec is not the fortress it once was.

Club America is in the driver's seat for this 2-leg series. That is entirely of the result of their performance in the Group Stage (earning a higher seed) and nabbing two away goals from the feet of Peralta and Quintero.

A lot of solid to above-average scores from a team that fought hard, but ultimately fell short.

The Seattle Sounders went to a hostile environment and played at altitude against a very strong team, and I thought they held their own, especially the first 40 minutes or so. Losing 3-1 (5-3 aggregate) to such a strong team is not the result they wanted, but nothing to be ashamed of.

Chad Marshall's goal was a wonderful moment. With it the Seattle Sounders are now on a loss-less streak, undefeated in two games. But there are a few problems that are as evident today as they were prior to game, maybe even more so.

The Sounders' new tactical configuration has been fraught with inconsistency this season. This was a team that dominated the LA Galaxy in preseason followed by two solid performances against Club America, after which they've decided to do a faceplant, losing their first three MLS matches. Most of those issues come down the reshuffled offensive configuration.
