The CONCACAF Champions League will be Mexican once again

Club America made it to the CONCACAF Champions League final with a 4-0 aggregate victory over Philadelphia Union to ensure the winner this year will be a Mexican team.  

The CONCACAF Champions League will be Mexican once again

Mexican club Club America yesterday beat Philadelphia Union 2-0, the same scoreline as the reverse fixture to proceed to the final of the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League 4-0, meaning the winner of this year's edition will be a Mexican club.

The second semifinal will be played today between Cruz Azul and Monterrey. Monterrey will go into the match with a goal advantage having won the first leg 1-0 last month. Whoever makes it to the final to play against Club America, and whoever the winner is, it will be a Mexican club.

Last year's winners were Mexican club Tigres UANL who were first time winners of the competition. Club America have won it seven times, Cruz Azul are six time winners while Monterrey are four times winners. Whoever wins this year's final which will be played on October 28 will certainly be a Mexican club and will not be first time winners.

The CONCACAF Champions League is competed by clubs in North America, Central America and the Caribbean and the winner automatically qualifies to represent the confederation at the FIFA Club World Cup. This year's FIFA Club World Cup has been moved to South Africa after Japan pulled out.
