[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] It was a big night for MLS clubs in the Concacaf Champions League. Real Salt Lake won Group A ahead of Cruz Azul when it beat the Mexico City club, 3-1, while the Columbus Crew clinched a berth in the quarterfinals when Santos of Mexico crushed Municipal of Guatemala, 6-1.

Real Salt Lake drew 20,463 fans for the game, breaking the Rio Tinto Stadium record it had set on Saturday.

Besides Santos and the Crew, Saprissa moved into next year's final eight with a 2-1 over the Seattle Sounders.

The final two berths will be decided Wednesday in Group D. The Puerto Rico Islanders, the D-2 Pro League finalists after upset wins over Rochester and Vancouver, could return to the Concacaf final eight for the second time in three years, but they will probably require a win over Olimpia of Honduras in Tegucigalpa.
