Toronto face Chivas in revamped 2-leg final — Concacaf Champions League

Toronto face Chivas in revamped 2-leg final — Concacaf Champions League

While the decisive leg will take place on Wednesday, April 25, at the Estadio Akron in Guadalajara, Mexico.

It's TFC's first-ever appearance in a Champions League final.

America has seven CCL titles, the most of any team.

The second leg was particularly one-sided in favour of the hosts, with the MLS side failing to convert one of their 20 shots at the Chivas goal in order to level the tie. With the aggregate 1-1 from the first leg in Mexico, the Red Bulls pushed for the goal that would have forced a penalty shoot out. Toronto FC endured a far tougher examination in the Azteca than the FIFA bid bods were likely to have given it. An away goal in either match further complicates things for the home side.

Toronto FC advance to the home-and-home total goals final against Chivas, who haven't won a Concacaf trophy since 1962 and will be itching to be making their own bit of history.

Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono made an impressive save in the 27th minute, getting a single hand on a sharp standing header from Club America midfielder Alex Ibarra, deflecting the ball wide of the net.

Bono came up big again five minutes later, throwing his hands up for a close-quarters save on Bruno Valdez, catching his own rebound to quiet Club América's offense.

In the 28th minute, Derrick Etienne rose above a crowd to get his head on a cross, but the attempt sailed over the crossbar. The critical save killed previous seconds off the clock as Toronto FC held tight to its lead.

As the game wore on, Toronto captain Michael Bradley moved further and further back, helping to shore up T.F.C.'s defense. His presence made a difference in the 80th minute when he stopped a potential breakaway from Diaz.

In the 18th minute, the Red Bulls had a scoring chance when Daniel Royer slid a pass into the box to the right leg of Kemar Lawrence, who just missed connecting. His shot was blocked by Toronto FC's wall, defusing the threat.
