CCL Update: Santos holds on for point against first-place Tigres

By Jonathan Kaplan

While the Dynamo continue their preseason training camp in Charleston, S.C., their 2012-13 CCL quarterfinal opponent Santos Laguna continues their run through Liga MX.

SECURE YOUR SEATS FOR THE MATCH VS. SANTOS AT BBVA COMPASS STADIUM

Last week, Santos got out to an early lead on first place Tigres UANL, but a 37th-minute strike from Anselmo Juninho gave the home side a 1-1 draw.

Darwin Quintero's second-minute golazo (watch highlights below) gave Santos an early lead and former Mexican national team goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez made three saves for Los Guerreros.

With the draw, Santos moves to 2-3-2 on the season and sits in a tie for eighth place in Liga MX.

The schedule doesn't get any easier for Santos as they travel home this week for a matchup Friday night against second-place Club America. The match kicks off at 9:30 p.m. CT at Estadio Corona in Torreon.
