Crew 2 Chivas USA 1
Chivas USA (8-4-3) have one MLS win in six games going into SuperLiga; surging Columbus now haven’t lost in nine games.
Notable: Chivas USA are tied with the Dyanmo for the lead in the Western Conference; Houston has two games in hand.
“We don’t want to make any excuses but for whatever reason, we ran out of gas,” said Chivas USA Coach Preki. “I’m surprised in the first goal that they got off a goal kick. It’s the second time we concede a goal off a goal kick … first in Houston. It’s the exact same play. So it’s disappointing … It happens in soccer, it’s a fast game, you got to think fast, react fast, and we certainly didn’t react fast”
Chivas USA now has three consecutive Super Liga games beginning Saturday against Tigres.
