The players might be their own worst enemy when it comes to winning the CONCACAF Champions League.
It's an all-too-familiar sight: an all Liga MX CONCACAF Champions League Final. Don't misunderstand - personally I love it. The Mexican teams deserve to be where they are - and that's precisely the problem for Major League Soccer.

Rubens Sambueza may have a dislocated shoulder, Dario Benedetto may be nursing a hamstring injury and Michael Arroyo may be coming off a leave of absence, but all could potentially be available for the second leg of Club America's CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal against the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.

The Portland Timbers may have the weekend off, but there is still plenty going on at Providence Park, starting with this evening's exhibition match between two Mexican sides: Chivas de Guadalajara and Club Leon. Overlapping with the Portland Timbers 2 season opener, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m.
The promotion I saw wasn't on ESPN Deportes. I saw it on the regular, powerful ESPN channel, clear as day on Saturday morning. A full day and a half ahead of the scheduled game, a segment of SportsCenter was dedicated to Chivas Guadalajara versus Club America. Apparently, this is Liga MX's biggest or most important rivalry, something I didn't know.
