Toronto FC advances in champions league
Sebastian Giovinco scored as Toronto FC lost to Mexico’s Tigres UANL 3-2 in a wild game on Tuesday in Monterrey, but advanced to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League on aggregate. Toronto won the opener of the two-leg series 2-1 at BMO Field last Wednesday. Giovinco’s goal and an own goal by Tigres defender Rafael Carioca gave TFC two crucial away goals in the series, allowing the Reds to move on in the tournament. The New York Red Bulls’ 2-0 win at Club Tijuana last week was just the third victory in 49 competitive matches (3-38-8) on Mexican soil for MLS clubs.
