2020 CONCACAF Champions League: LAFC beat Club America to book ticket to final


Los Angeles FC has emulated the shining examples of fellow Major League Soccer (MLS) sides Toronto FC, Montreal Impact, and Real Salt Lake to qualify for the grand finale of the CONCACAF Champions League.

LAFC defeated Club America 3-1 in Saturday’s second semifinal to book a ticket to the final of the 2020 edition against Tigres UANL on Tuesday. Carlos Vela scored his second brace of the competition while Ghanaian winger Latif Blessing rounded up the victory with an injury-time goal as the Black and Gold survived an early scare from Club America’s 11th-minute lead through Sebastian Caceres.

This is the first time that an MLS club has reached the CCL final since Toronto FC (2018), Montreal Impact (2015), and Real Salt Lake (2011). LAFC has even made it more special after beating three Liga MX opponents on their way to the 2020 grand finale.

History beckons LAFC as they seek the honor to be the first-ever MLS side to win the CCL.
