Rayados de Monterrey is the great champion of the Concacaf Champions League. Javier Aguirre's team justly beat Club América 1-0 on the field of the BBVA Bancomer Stadium and in front of its people, in order to hang the fifth star and win a ticket to the FIFA Club World Cup.

The gang came out determined to win the match and pounced on Guillermo Ochoa's goal, until at 9 minutes Rogelio Funes Mori appeared to capitalize on an error by Sebastián Cáceres and score 1 to 0. Then, Albiazul dedicated himself to being standing well and trying to counterattack to finish the match.

The second half had hot moments such as Roger Martínez's strike over Celso Ortíz that did not result in an expulsion, Vincent Janssen's incredible no-goal, and the hand on the end of Maxi Meza that all Americanism claimed as a penalty. The truth is that the joy was Rayada and the possibility of being in the Arab Emirates to face Chelsea, too.

In addition to the prize that means being in the FIFA Club World Cup, Monterrey will receive a financial prize for being victorious in the grand final. According to data published by the newspaper El Economista, the Monterrey team pockets a sum of 500 thousand dollars for being champion.
