CCL: MLS clubs put unbeaten record on the line

Just two MLS clubs are in action in Week 3 of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League. D.C. United welcomes Montego Bay United, coached by American Tim Hankinson, on Tuesday, while the Seattle Sounders face a grueling trip to Tegucigalpa the next day to take on Honduran powerhouse Olimpia a week after their miraculous 2-1 win at home.

D.C. United will be geavily favored against Montego Bay, which named Hankinson as its head coach after it opened its CCL campaign with a 3-0 loss to Panama's Arabe Unido. A week ago, United traveled to Panama City and beat Arabe Unido, 1-0.

Marco Pappa, back with the Sounders after completing his league-mandated treatment program following his DUI arrest, was among the players who traveled with Seattle to Honduras via Houston, where they spent Monday night.

The Sounders played to a 1-1 tie with Vancouver in their CCL opener. Otherwise, MLS clubs are perfect in the group stage.
