Here's the situation:
United has four points. Houston has four points. Morelia has scratched out two. And Club America, with none, has been eliminated from semifinal contention. United plays at Houston Wednesday with the winner claiming first in the group. However, a tie in that game and a Morelia victory over America would create a mess with three teams at five points.
With two teams, the tiebreakers are head to head, followed by goal differential and total goals. But with three teams? All hell breaks loose.
Anyway, if United makes the semis and plays Chivas or Pachuca, the match will likely be held at FedEx Field on Aug. 14 or 15. If United faces an MLS club in the semis, they will probably go on the road.
So much for looking ahead. How about a look back?
