Dropping Timber analyzed the performance of MLS teams in the CONCACAF Champions League, since it switched to the new format.  This includes the last two years, plus a few preliminary matches from this year.  We will update this data as the champions league progresses.

  • We counted wins, losses and ties in preliminary matches, group stage and the championship round. 
  • Matches decided by PKs counted as tie
  • Only six matches for 2010-11 champions league so far

 Here are the results:

Leagues the MLS outperformed
MLS vs. El Salvador League 1 (W-L-T)
3-0-3

MLS vs. Panama League 1 (W-L-T)
2-1-1

MLS vs. Honduras League 1 (W-L-T)
1-0-1

Even performance
MLS vs. US Division 2 (W-L-T)
2-2-1

MLS vs. Honduras League 1 (W-L-T)
1-1-0

Leagues that outclassed the MLS
MLS vs. Trindad & Tobago League 1 (W-L-T)
1-3-1

MLS vs. Mexico League 1 (W-L-T)
1-6-2

MLS vs. Costa Rica League 1 (W-L-T)

Overall the MLS is 11-12-9 in Champions League play over the last 3 years.   Stay tuned this year to see how that changes.

    Toronto FC hardly count as an MLS team… only there because they won the Canadian Cup or whatever it's called.

    I'm not sure why an MLS team wouldn't count as an MLS team.
