FC Cincinnati will balance the divisions at 12 each, and with it comes a revised playoff format. 

14 teams instead of 12, one off matches all the way through instead of 2 legged quarter/semifinals, and first round byes for Conference Champions only. 



The regular season will remain at 34 games, which is the perfect number to play each team in your own division twice, once at home and once on the road, and each team in the opposite division once.

Atlanta United's CONCACAF Champions League first round opponent (Herediano) is off to a poor start in 2019. Midway through the fourth round of matches, they are dead last in the 12 team Costa Rican Primera Division.

I knew that USA and Mexico each get 4 auto bids, and Canada gets one. Hadn't really looked much into the others until just the other day. 

Five of the seven Central American countries each get one auto bid. So that uses up all but two. 

One of the two remaining auto bids goes to the Caribbean, where all of those countries have a giant tournament to fight over their singular auto bid. Then the other three Caribbean semifinal participants enter into a second tournament with a bunch of Central American teams. 

In this second tournament each Central American Country gets two auto bids except for Belize who only gets one. For Belize and Nicaragua the second tournament is their only possible path to a champions league bid, since neither country gets an auto bid to the main champions league tournament.

Is it 2022 or 2026 when they broke the damn thing by screwing up the format by (1) making qualifications a complete joke, and (2) basically making it a big single elimination final tournament; and have to play it in like December because they are staging it in the middle of the desert?

2022 it's in dec in desert. but still same 32 team, 4 team group stage + 4 knockout rounds format

2026 it's in usa/canada/mexico (primarily usa). but going from 32 teams to 48, and doing a 3 team group instead of 4 with 2 advancing, and adding an extra knockout stage. or that's last i heard.

Atletico put a pretty big dent in Juve's (and Ronaldo's) chances at the Champions League title today. Man City had a big win at Schalke (with 3 away goals).

Bayern and Barca basically held serve yesterday with nil-nil away games against Liverpool and Lyon, respectively.

atletico punking juve was surprising. juve been on fire this season.

city managing to come back from that first half debacle... shalke had it gifted to them and choked. 2 iffy (but probably correct) penalties and city down to 10 and still concede 2 late goals to lose. at home. to top off the suck from that match, mckinnie might be hurt too.

spurs pulled out a big win, though was a tale of 2 halves. bvb were better side in first, but couldn't find the net. pulisic had a couple good chances but couldn't finish. spurs and jan/son, on other hand, didn't have much issues taking over after halftime. and now they're likely to have kane and dele back for second leg, not looking good for bvb. liking my spurs right now. coys

didn't watch much of the rest.

interesting note, of the 8 rd16/leg1 matches only 1 match wasn't tied 0-0 at halftime, shalke/city.

Sporting KC and Toluca tonight in the lone MLS vs Liga MX match up in the opening round. 

So far all of the USA teams have won the first leg. Atlanta plays tonight as well.

Defending runner up Toronto might as well not even play the second leg after losing game 1 by four goals.

The Crew defeat FC Cincinnati 3-0 in a trial run of the Hell is Real Derby, finishing the preseason at 2-0-2.

The two teams meet twice during the regular season, both times in August. Cincinnati won the lone game between the two teams in a 2017 US Open Cupset 1-0.

Apparently there is a seven team Canadian Premier League starting up this year. Coast to coast participation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Canadian_Premier_League

The league brings FC Edmonton back from the dead with their records intact, upgrading their status from "extinct" to "coming off of a one year hiatus." Ottawa FC will remain in the USL.

In related news, the 2019 Canadian Championship field has been expanded in order to include these seven teams.

All four USA teams advance. 

They will all play a Mexican team except Sporting KC, who was the only one to face a Mexican team in the opening round. They will instead play the Panama team that knocked off Toronto.

Was the first round seeded? The Mexican team SKC played shouldn't even be in the same league with the other three. Houston, Atlanta, and NY Red Bulls will play the #1, #2, and #6 Mexican Primera Division teams. The team SKC played is at #15. Two points above relegation if they do that with the last three teams.

Not seeded traditionally, necessarily. They try to line it up so that the second round is all MLS vs Liga MX. But with five MLS teams there has to be one such match in the opening round. The other seven round one games feature a team from MLS/Liga MX vs a team from Central America/Caribbean. Obviously there are upsets from time to time, like the team from Costa Rica that just ate Toronto's lunch. Now Toronto is coming off of a bad MLS season of course, but they also made it all the way to the final match of this thing last year.

My thoughts from the Game:

1) Wholly f#ck! we had a game today!
2) As an Avid Buckeye Football fan, today's weather was down right pleasant.
3) 17.9K announced attendance, I'll take it; but had hoped for the stands to look more full. The one row of NYRB supporters was cute.
3) The Pregame season ticket holder "brunch" was delightful, but why only Corona was offered for the free drink passes?
4) Santos, Santos, Santos, he has they flashes of speed, jets down the wing, everyone gets excited, then face plant. uggg. (literally, no one touched him, he just ran until he tripped and did a face plant, and kinda ended the game.)
5) Fernandez for New York needs to be carded for his theatrics. The card he got on Harrison was an abomination. (Afful had position jumped up to chest the ball down, in the replay his elbow was away from his body (important.) Fernandez comes flying in Jet Lie jump kick style, he is way late and out of position on the challenge, gets no where close to the ball, but during his reckless challenge his head collides with Aful's elbow, and he "knocks" himself out. Literally lies motionless on the field. Ref stops the game, issues the card, they cart Fernandez off the field, he pops right up and checks himself back in before New York even kicks the free ball awarded to him for the foul. err.) 
6) The type of soccer I enjoy most starts with a creative dominant center midfielder. It seems to me Artur and Trapp's favorite play is the pass back to a defender. Love Higuin's play style, but he doesn't control the midfield. Seems like all we do is the 4-2-3-1, is that a weakness of this formation or not having a dominant center?
7) Seeing Berhalter up in the stands was a pleasant treat.

GLORY TO COLUMBUS!
