Toronto FC ad­vances in cham­pi­ons league

Vancouver Sun - - SPORTS -

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.
