RSL adds to Toronto's misery

[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] A change in head coach didn't mean a change in fortunes for Toronto FC. After taking an early lead in the first all-MLS clash in the Concacaf Champions League, visiting TFC collapsed and fell to Real Salt Lake, 4-1.

Playing its first game under interim coach Nick Dasovic since the firing of head coach Preki and director of soccer Mo Johnston, Toronto was gifted a goal scored by Maicon Santos in the eighth minute.

But the Toronto defense could not hold, and Kyle Beckerman and Jamison Olave scored on headers off corner kicks to send Real Salt Lake, unbeaten at home in its last 28 games, into the locker room with a 2-1 lead.

Things got worse for TFC in the second half when Spaniard Mista was red carded and then RSL was awarded a penalty kick for a rash challenge by Nick Garcia on Will Johnson.

Alvaro Saborio converted the penalty kick -- his fifth goal in three Concacaf Champions League matches -- and 21-year-old Paulo Araujo Jr. closed out the scoring 10 minutes later. Araujo was playing his first game for RSL since being acquired on loan from Miami FC of the D-2 Pro League.

RSL is tied with Cruz Azul for first place with six points. TFC and Arabe Unido are third with three points.

Cruz Azul crushed Arabe Unido, 6-0. Javier Orozco, Cruz Azul's 21-year-old star, scored the first three goals to give him seven goals in the last two games.
