SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake (2-1-1, 7 points, Group 2 #2) was eliminated from the CONCACAF Champions League on Tuesday night, failing to score the necessary goal in a 0-0 draw with Group 2 winners C.S. Herediano (3-0-1, 10 points, Group 2 #1) at a rainy Rio Tinto Stadium to fall out of the regional competition.

On the teams bright start to the game…
“It’s always a little frustrating when you have so many clear chances and you don’t take them, but I think that our guys put all the right effort into it. Herediano made it very, very difficult in the second half; literally, putting 11 players, almost in their penalty box and it will always be tough to score on a team that plays like that. I was expecting Herediano to come out and play a little more soccer than they did tonight and not muddle up the game like they did.”
