CONCACAF Champions League Preview: Assessing MLS's Chances

With the preliminary stage of CONCACAF Champions League getting ready to kick off on Tuesday, we figured the best way to look at this tournament was from the perspective of the five MLS teams that will be participating. The Los Angeles Galaxy (Supporters' Shield) and Colorado Rapids (MLS Cup) earned direct entry into the group stage, while FC Dallas (MLS Cup runner-up), Seattle Sounders (U.S. Open Cup) and Toronto FC (Nutrilite Canadian Championship) will all have to play in the qualifying round.

In this stream, you'll find write-ups on all five MLS teams and what challenges await them.

In the meantime, here's a schedule of their games:

Seattle Sounders vs. San Francisco FC
