The Montreal Impact bring back two away goals to Stade Olympique for the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League Round of 16 after playing to a 2-2 draw at Deportivo Saprissa.

Montreal couldn't have asked for a better start in the opening leg, with goals by Orji Okwonkwo and Romell Quioto inside the opening 22 minutes to stun the crowd at the Monsters Cave. But Thierry Henry was forced to use all three of his substitutions to replace injured players and Saprissa stormed back to level late on goals by Johan Venegas and Ariel Rodriguez.

The winner meets either Seattle Sounders FC or CD Olimpia in the quarterfinals. The teams are level at two heading into the second leg at CenturyLink Field Thursday.
