After two semifinal legs, it all comes down to two teams to fight for a ticket to the Club World Cup, as well as carry bragging rights as the king of the region. Toronto survived the Azteca, while Chivas scrapped by New York on the road to finally arrive at the CONCACAF Champions League final.

For Toronto, the 3-1 win at home was the boost they needed over América, who struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. Toronto didn’t play pretty on the road, but they got a 1-0 lead early in Azteca. Despite a late penalty, América didn’t have enough tricks up their sleeves to advance to the final of the SCCL.

Chivas, on the other hand, had a total 180 from their home leg last week. New York suffered the same fate as América where the ball could just not find the back of the net. Chivas, although they didn’t necessarily bunker back, had a tough time stringing passes together.

Chivas pulled off the 0-0 on the road, which was enough to see them through to the final. From here, one must favor Toronto in the final over Chivas. Toronto has taken out two big Mexican names on their way, but Chivas has stood tall against a big name in the past.

Can Chivas turn their year around and go all in at the CONCACAF Champions League final? Or will Toronto FC be just too powerful on their road to the crown?

We will find out next week in the first leg on April 17!
