CONCACAF Champions League Toronto Guadalajara to meet in final

Chivas topped the New York Red Bulls 1-0 on aggregate after a 0-0 draw in Tuesday's second leg, and Toronto FC slayed another of Liga MX's grandes, topping Club America 4-2 on aggregate after Tuesday 1-1 draw in the second leg, to set up a clash of leagues in the CCL final.

In the first leg, Toronto took advantage of a loud home crowd to score goals from Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore and Ashtone Morgan, winning 3-1. Chivas gain the advantage of the second leg at home by virtue of having accumulated the most points in their six matches to reach the final.

America now needed three goals to force extra-time and the Liga MX side went close twice before the half-hour, with Alex Bono coming up with fine save from point-blank range and Oribe Peralta's redirected shot just missing at the far post.

Pain became joy when Toronto scored a vital away goal to extend their aggregate lead to 4-1.

But the match was marred by violence that broke out in the stands after the final whistle at Red Bulls Stadium.

Chivas overcame the New York Red Bulls in New York 1-0 to qualify.

In the end, a goalkeeping masterclass from Rodolfo Cota saw the Mexicans through, as Chivas progressed to their first continental final in the Champions League era thanks to Isaac Brizuela's effort in the first leg. America's William da Silva beat him to the ball but inadvertently played the ball directly into Jonathan Osorio's pass for the goal.

The Toronto FC goalkeeper stepped up again in the 63rd minute, jumping to get a glove on the ball and tip a well-placed strike from Alejandro Diaz over the crossbar. His shot was blocked by Toronto F.C.'s wall.

Andres Uribe tied it for Club America in the second minute of injury time on a penalty kick.
