If there is one lesson that coach Jason Kreis has preached to RSL as it prepares for its big Champions League showdown with Saprissa of Costa Rica tonight, it's that a two-goal lead is nothing especially when a team has to go on the road to defend it."I believe strongly that 2-0 is a very dangerous scoreline in soccer," Kreis told a packed press conference. "And oftentimes that comes about because of complacency. We're going to have to recognize that this is still a huge, huge challenge in front of us and not to become complacent for one moment."
RSL is trying to protect the 2-0 lead it earned in the first leg of the two-game semifinal, and will advance to the title round of the tournament with a win, draw or one-goal loss against the Purple Monster at Saprissa Stadium tonight. Even a two-goal loss will get it through, so long as it scores a goal itself.
The game starts at 8 p.m., and will be televised live on Fox Soccer Channel.
