  Plucky Impact hang on for 0-0 tie to advance to Champions League quarters The Impact had a simple game plan going into the second leg of their Round of 16 CONCACAF Champions League matchup against Costa Rican side Deportivo Saprissa at the Olympic Stadium Wednesday: Score the first goal and put the pressure on the visitors.
