Real Espana got an 88th-mintue equalizer from midfielder Julio Rodriguez to tie the Colorad Rapids 1-1 in CONCACAF Champions League Group B action in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, last night.
Rapids midfielder Jeff Larentowicz opened the scoring with a perfectly placed shot from the top of the box in first-half stoppage time, and Colorado came close to making it stand up for a 1-0 win—which would have made MLS teams a perfect 7-for-7 in CCL group play—but Colorado right back Kosuke Kimura, one of just four regulars in the Rapids’ starting XI, headed an attempted clearance straight at Rodriguez, and the Uruguayan slammed home a volley to send each team on its way with a point.
Here are the highlights:
