After the match in Mexico, Seattle had a week to rest and recover. This team did not play in the MLS. The league gave the Sounders a chance to prepare properly for the main match of the season. It should be noted that before the tie with Pumas, Seattle had lost two consecutive matches in MLS: Inter Miami and San Jose Earthquakes. But there's no reason to be nervous about the MLS title race, given that the league season has just begun, so there's still time to rectify the situation in the conference. But when will they have a chance to become the strongest team on the continent? It should be noted that statistically, Seattle outclassed Pumas in the first leg, conceding territory in the process. The Americans' superiority was particularly evident in the second half. There was a feeling that the Mexicans weren't ready for the Sounders to add to their lead in the second half, but they were able to and equalized in the 90+9th minute.
In Mexico, however, no one gave Pumas an excuse to play a domestic league game and they played a home game against Pachuca on May 1. That encounter gave the Pumas an extra boost. The hosts were considered the underdogs in the encounter but secured a 2-0 win and even improved their position in the Clausura del Estado de México. By the way, Pachuca maintained their lead in the league even after that defeat. In other words, Pumas were confronted by a very tough opponent. During their return trip to the CONCACAF Champions League playoffs, Pumas played two draws against Saprissa and Cruz Azul and lost 0-3 to the American New England Revolution.
