There’s no Video Review in the Concacaf Champions League and maybe that’s a good thing for CD Olimpia, who could have been reduced to 10 men for the final 65 minutes of a 2-2 draw against the Seattle Sounders Thursday night in Honduras.
On a free kick played to the edge of the six-yard box, Olimpia’s Yustin Arboleda came in studs up and connected with Stefan Frei. The Sounders goalkeeper objected, resulting in a few shoves between the teams.
Referee Juan Calderon booked both with matching yellow cards. Sounders officials were infuriated Arboleda stayed on. Making things worse for Seattle and its fans, Arboleda struck for a second-half brace to secure the draw and earn Man of the Match honors.
