LAFC Lose In CONCACAF Champions League Final

Concacaf Champions League Trophy

There’s no shame in losing to a team as good as Tigres UANL, but that doesn’t make Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat in the Concacaf Champions League Final any less painful for LAFC, considering how close they came to pulling off the upset.

In a game that most pregame predictions had Tigres winning handily, it was LAFC that were in the driver’s seat following Diego Rossi’s 61st-minute opener that put his team just 30 minutes from history. Then, there was a golden opportunity just four minutes later after Kwadwo Opoku beat his defender down the right side and found an open Carlos Vela in the box for the type of look the standout Mexico international has finished so many times before.
