[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The five MLS teams in the 2013-14 Concacaf Champions League were drawn into their groups on Monday night. The San Jose Earthquakes and Montreal Impact will meet in Group 5, while all five MLS clubs were separated from Mexican clubs for the group stage.

Like last season, each of the eight groups consists of three teams playing each other twice for a total of four games over six match dates. Only the group winner will advance to the quarterfinals. In 2012-13, three MLS clubs reached the knockout phase. Two of them, the LA Galaxy and Houston Dynamo, return in 2013-14.

The Mexican quarter includes Tijuana, the 2010 Torneo Apertura champion and 2013 Libertadores Cup quarterfinalist whose roster features half a dozen Americans, and Club America, winner of the 2013 Torneo Clausura.

Monterrey, the three-time Concacaf Champions League champion, did not qualify for the 2013-14 edition.

2013-14 Concacaf Champions League group draw:
Group 1: Arabe Unido (Panama), Houston Dynamo, W Connection (Trin. & Tobago).
Group 2: Olimpia (Honduras), Sporting KC, Real Esteli (Nicaragua).
Group 3: Herediano (Costa Rica), Cruz Azul (Mexico), Valencia (Haiti).
Group 4: Club America (Mexico), Alajuelense (Costa Rica), Sporting San Miguelito (Panama)
Group 5: San Jose Earthquakes, Montreal Impact, Guatemala #2.
Group 6: Comunicaciones (Guatemala), Toluca (Mexico), Caledonia FC (Trin. & Tobago).
Group 7: Tijuana (Mexico), Victoria (Nicaragua), San Luis Firpo (E Salvador).
Group 8: LA Galaxy, Isidro Metapan (El Salvador), Cartagines (Costa Rica).
