Toronto FC Advance In Concacaf Champions League After Thriller vs. Tigres

Tigres beat Toronto FC 3-2 in the Concacaf Champions League Tuesday in Monterrey, but the MLS side advanced on away goals.

After a thrilling 3-2 Tigres win in Monterrey pulled the Liga MX club level with Toronto FC on aggregate in the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals, the defending MLS Cup champions advanced to the semifinals over the Liga MX Apertura Champions on away goals.

Toronto FC needed a lucky Tigres own goal, some Sebastian Giovinco magic (he scored a free kick, as per usual) and a little more luck to withstand a late Tigres rally in order to advance, but advance they did. 

Toronto FC await the winner between Club America and Tauro FC. Club AMerica take a 4-0 aggregate lead into Wednesday's second leg.
