Real Salt Lake on the brink of history
RSL looking to close deal against Monterrey tonight
"At the beginning of this tournament I'm sure not many Mexican teams or other teams around the tournament would've circled us and said 'Oh man we don't want to play them.' We've showed everyone we're a good team and we deserve to be here," he said.
RSL is 6-2-3 in its 11 Champions League games thus far, while Monterrey is still unbeaten with an impressive 8-0-3 record.
