Gyasi Zardes: Columbus Crew SC "on the same playing field" as CF Monterrey

Columbus Crew SC have never advanced past the quarterfinal of a continental club tournament, despite their relative vast history around these parts. Columbus were eliminated at the quarterfinal stage of each of the Concacaf Giants Cup in 2001, Concacaf Champions Cup in 2003 and then twice in the modern Concacaf Champions League, in 2010 and 2011. If they are to make club history this year, it won't come easy.
