This week, the preliminary rounds of the CONCACAF Champions League tournament officially concluded, and we finally know the details of each group in the next round.
Featured in the tournament this year are five total MLS squads and four Mexican sides, meaning that more than half of the contenders this time around will be from the two strongest leagues in the region.
Monterrey is back for a repeat-title, LA Galaxy are finally enjoying a spot in the group stage after failing to qualify last year, and the Seattle Sounders are hoping to improve on their last-place finish in their group.
It should be one of the most competitive, and entertaining, CONCACAF tournaments in recent years. So who will advance out of the group stage and remain alive in the hunt for regional glory?
These are the predictions for the final group stage positions for the 2011-12 tournament. Enjoy.
