Monterrey Campeón

CONCACAF Champions League 2019 against arch-rival Tigres. This helps us all heal from the December 2017 catastrophe.

I was luckily able to attend the first leg in which Rayados won 1-0. You can recognize me as the sole schmuck wearing the visiting team jersey in the photos below.



MONTERRY, Mexico — Faced with a two-goal deficit entering the final 30 minutes, Monterrey pulled off a comeback for the ages to win the CONCACAF Champions League crown for a record third consecutive time on Wednesday night.

Here are all the goals:

But if you only have time to watch one thing, watch Giovani Dos Santos‘ goal (remember him?) that clinched the match for Mexico. It’s the kind of goal that you would only expect from one of The Greats: Pelé, Maradona, Zidane, Messi… Unbelievable.
