[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Toronto FC completed a perfect week for MLS clubs in the Concacaf Champions League when it beat Panama's Tauro FC, 2-1, on the road thanks to early goals by Ryan Johnson and Julian de Guzman.

Toronto had lost in Panama to Arabe Unido in last year's group stage and finished third in its group. It only allowed a late penalty by Panamanian international Luis Moreno.

In last year's group stage, the best MLS's four entrants did was go 3-1 in two weeks but only Real Salt Lake and the Columbus Crew advanced to the quarterfinals.
