Sounders will face Santos, Pumas or LA in CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal

Group play ended last night in CONCACAF Champions League, meaning the quarterfinal field is now set.

Three MLS clubs made it through: Sounders FC, Toronto FC and the LA Galaxy. Joining them are Mexican clubs Morelia, Santos, Pumas and Santos, along with El Salvador's Metapan.

The knockout round -- settled by home-and-away aggregate-score series -- will begin in March with group winners playing the runner-up from another group. Because clubs from the same group will be paired, it means that the Sounders' will be paired against either Santos, Pumas or LA.
