It started against a Mexican club and it will end with a Mexican club. The Montreal Impact's CONCACAF Champions League knockout round campaign has a Mexican flavor as it knows its opponent for the CCL Final: Club America. Down 3-0 after the first leg, the Liga MX juggernaut had a remarkable and not so surprising performance at home, in front of 76,000 fans.
The Impact's destiny is tied yet again to a Mexican club but at least the curse seem to have lifted, courtesy of Santos Laguna.
