The rules for tiebreakers after the jump:

So right now the group is all knoted up, so what happens in the event of a tie at the end of the group stage? Well CONCACAF has these rules:

Phase 2: Group Stage
· Greater number of points earned in matches between the teams concerned
· Greater goal difference in matches between the teams concerned
· Greater number of goals scored away from home in matches between the teams concerned
· Reapply first three criteria if two or more teams are still tied
· Greater goal difference in all group matches
· Greater number of goals scored in group matches
· Greater number of goals scored away in all group Matches
· Drawing of lots

The 4 road goals give RSL the advantage as things stand today, but wow the 3 points for a road win, or even a point for a road draw would be good. You have to believe that RSL will be playing a full 90 from now on in these matches.
