Boy, MLS sides really know how to stink it up in Mexico. If the LA Galaxy doesn't have a CCL hangover, I'm sure their fans do this morning. More on that in a moment though as we hit our midway point on the week.

Time for some morning links to get the day started off.

You have to love seeing that this guy will practice these set pieces on his own, after training.

FCD starting to get healthy | Soccerly.com

Good news on the injury front for FCD. Looks like we may at least have Zach Loyd and Raul Fernandez on the bench this weekend.

Hassli lands in San Antonio | SAScorpions.com

Kudos to Matt Barbour for breaking this one yesterday afternoon. Also, good move for Hassli. I know he was hoping to remain in Texas if he could, this certainly gives him that chance.

LA struggle in Tijuana match | MLSSoccer.com

The Mexican side had a huge first half, particularly a huge first 10 minutes last night. A 4-1 drubbing of the club that I felt had the best chance of advancing in this edition of the CCL.

LA had a similar quote going into their match, look what happened to them last night.

Mayhem on 635 | CBS11

Yeah, the photos from this scene yesterday were insane. Cars literally turning around on a major freeway and driving the other way.

And finally our stadium tour today takes us to Belgium with the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
