[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]Following losses at home, MLS clubs Seattle and Los Angeles face long odds in the second legs of the Concacaf Champions League semifinals on the road in Mexico. The Seattle Sounders trail Santos, 1-0, while the Galaxy carries a 2-1 deficit into the return game against two-time defending champion Monterrey at the Estadio Tecnologico.

SEATTLE-SANTOS (Tuesday, 8 p.m. ET, Fox Soccer, Univision Deportes)
The Sounders are off to their worst start since joining MLS with one win in seven games. The last time they traveled to Torreon they fell to Santos 6-1 after winning the first leg of their 2012 quarterfinal series 2-1. Eddie Johnson, who missed the first leg, traveled and should at least be available off the bench.

MONTERREY-LA GALAXY (Wednesday, 10 p.m. ET, Fox Soccer, Galavision)
Brazilian midfielderJuninho went off in the second half of the first leg with a headache he blamed on a shake he drank, and the Galaxy blew its 1-0 lead without him. He should be available to start on Wednesday however. Monterrey is taking the second leg seriously. Several key players were rested over the weekend, and the game is expected to be a sellout.
