Video highlights: Portland Timbers win, Sporting Kansas City ties in CONCACAF Champions League

It isn't easy to follow the CONCACAF Champions League. Games are often broadcast on out-of-the-way TV channels, or via Fox Soccer 2 Go's less-than-stellar online streaming. The major international wire services don't even pay attention, rarely filing stories or photos from on-site.

It isn't easy to follow the CONCACAF Champions League. Games are often broadcast on out-of-the-way TV channels, or via Fox Soccer 2 Go's less-than-stellar online streaming. The major international wire services don't even pay attention, rarely filing stories or photos from on-site.

But CONCACAF does help after the fact, posting free highlights packages to YouTube from every game. So here's a roundup of Tuesday night's action, with all the videos in one place. I'll try to do this the morning after every match day - I don't want to promise I'll always remember, but I'll do my best.

Alpha United (Guyana) 1, Portland Timbers (United States) 4

Alpha United: Barbosa Murillo 45'
Portland Timbers: Steve Zakuani 18', Maximiliano Urruti 34', Fanendo Adi 66', Alvas Powell 83'

Real Estelí (Nicaragua) 1, Sporting Kansas City (United States) 1

Real Estelí: Jorge Claros (own goal) 6'
Sporting Kansas City: Antonio Dovale 16'

Club América (Mexico) 6, Bayamón FC (Puerto Rico) 1

Club América: Moisés Velasco 6', Michael Arroyo 8', Ventura Alvarado 14', Martin Zuñiga 20', Gil Giovanni Burón Morales 45 +3', Martin Zuñiga 90 +3'

Chorrillo (Panama) 1, Cruz Azul (Mexico) 0

Chorrillo: Justine Arboleda 70'

Although Tuesday night was the first night that most MLS fans started paying attention to this season's tournament, it was the second week of matches. The first took place at the same time as the MLS All-Star Game, and the Montréal Impact were the only MLS team playing. They beat FAS of El Salvador, 1-0, with a 21st minute goal by Marco Di Vaio:
