United is on verge of semis
United came out in the second half looking for an insurance goal. It got some help when Club America went down to 10 men in the 49th minute after Oscar Rojas was red-carded for his wild two-footed tackle on Marc Burch.
Soehn sent on midfielder Clyde Simms for Dyachenko in the 58th minute. Emilio, as the lone forward, blew a perfect chance to increase the lead when his header sailed wide with only the goalie to beat.
“Tonight I think we were more organized defensively,” Perkins said. “We withstood them for the first 15 minutes and everything they threw at us. We knew they were going to press us and then we opened the game up and stuck with our game plan and kept the ball.”
Club America, which looked very much still in preseason form, is one of Mexico’s most storied teams after winning 10 Mexican league titles and five CONCACAF Champions’ Cups.
The SuperLiga pits the top four American teams against Mexico’s top four clubs. The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinals with the winner taking home $1 million.
