[CHAMPIONS CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The final day of group play in the Concacaf Champions League will be held this week. The Seattle Sounders are assured of reaching next year's quarterfinals of the regional club championship, and as many as three more MLS teams could advance. Here's a look at their chances.

LOS ANGELES GALAXY. The Galaxy is tied for second place in Group A with Morelia of Mexico, three points behind Alajuelense of Costa Rica, heading into Thursday's game at Motagua of Honduras. The Galaxy will advance with a win. It will also advance with a tie in the unlikely scenario that Alajuelense beats Morelia in Mexico on Tuesday. If the Galaxy loses, its only chance is that it that Morelia loses and it then beats out the Mexican club on goal difference. (Morelia currently leads 9-4 to 7-4.)

FC DALLAS OR TORONTO FC. The winner of Tuesday's game between FC Dallas and Toronto FC will advance. FC Dallas will also advance with a tie -- it has already won in Toronto -- unless Panama's Tauro FC beats UNAM in Mexico City on Wednesday. A tie in Frisco and Tauro win in Mexico City would leave all four teams with eight points and send Tauro and Pumas through to the quarterfinals on the basis of their better goal differential.

COLORADO RAPIDS. The Rapids play Mexican club Santos in Torreon on Wednesday. Santos has already clinched a berth in the quarterfinals, but the Rapids, Isidro Metapan of El Salvador and Real Espana of Honduras are all still alive for the other berth from Group B. The Rapids will clinch the second berth with a win. If they tie or lose in Torreon, their fate will be determined on Thursday when Isidro Metapan and Real Espana meet in El Salvador. The Rapids will go through if Isidro Metapan and Real Espana tie.
