Two more MLS teams enter the tournament Wednesday: Portland Timbers, who will host Cal FC at 7:30 p.m.; and, of course, Sounders FC, which will meet the Atlanta Silverbacks at Starfire Sports Stadium at 7 p.m.
Here is something Sounders coach Sigi Schimd said earlier in the day when asked if MLS teams were taking the tournament more seriously:
"I think more are taking it seriously from the standpoint that they know it gets you into the Champions League...Now that people see that it's a vehicle to get in to the Champions League, I think teams look at it a little more seriously. Each team has to manage it as to where their players are at this present moment, and that will determine the team they put on the field."
