ExtraTime Radio: Club Tijuana's Greg Garza reveals key to ousting LA Galaxy from CCL

Border Battles

The CONCACAF Champions League is the final frontier for the LA Galaxy, but a confident Tijuana side is ready to put the dagger in those dreams in this week's second leg. Andrew, Simon and David caught up with Xolos' American left back Greg Garza from Tijuana and he revealed the Galaxy's Achilles' heel. Also, learn about Garza's winding road that took him from Sao Paulo to Sporting Lisbon and nearly saw him land in MLS.

Another MLS club hoping to survive a CCL trip to Mexico this week is the San Jose Earthquakes. Will the Goonie magic work south of the border? What makes the Quakes a great comeback team? Veteran goalkeeper Jon Busch joins us from Mexico to discuss.

While still grappling with the loss of long-time host Nick Firchau, the guys recapped an epic Week 2 in MLS dominated by Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe and the Clint Dempsey "tapping up" incident that has fans calling for a suspension.
