Finishing 2017 with arguably the greatest season in MLS history, Toronto FC has its eyes set on becoming the top club in North America by winning the Concacaf Champions League. After defeating reigning Liga MX champion Tigres UANL in the quarterfinals, the Reds open the semifinals with a matchup against Mexico’s all-time winningest team in Club América on Tuesday at BMO Field (8 p.m. ET, UDN / go90.com).
Topping Tigres at home and holding onto victory in aggregate goals on the road in the quarterfinals, Toronto will look for a similar recipe when facing the 12-time Liga MX champions Club América. In front of a potential sellout crowd, Toronto will rely on its usual recipe of goals from star players and talented Homegrowns. All five goals scored by the club in CCL play thus far have been by either Designated Players or Homegrowns, with Sebastian Giovinco (two goals), Jonathan Osorio (two goals) and Jozy Altidore (one goal) starring.
