Sounders Steal Draw With 2 Late Penalties In Champions League Final First Leg

The Seattle Sounders were not at their best in the first leg of the Concacaf Champions League final, but the MLS side did just enough to eke out a massive 2-2 draw with Pumas on Wednesday night in Mexico City. 

In a match in which neither side played particularly well — a downpour at the start of the match played a part in that — Nico Lodeiro smashed two late penalty kicks past Mexico international keeper Alfredo Talavera to cancel out two goals from Juan Ignacio Dinenno. The result sets up an enthralling second leg in Seattle on Wednesday, May 4.
