How New York Red Bulls or Toronto FC can advance to the CCL Final

Is there a chance for an all-MLS Concacaf Champions League final? It's certainly possible after the first leg results last week. At BMO Field, Toronto FC defeated Club America, 3-1, while the New York Red Bulls fell to Chivas de Guadalajara at Estadio Akron, 1-0. A 2-0 win by each home team would mean Club America and the Red Bulls advance. An away goal in either match further complicates things for the home side.

Below are grids showing the scoreline that each team needs to advance to the Concacaf Champions League Final.

The away-goals rule: The away-goals rule is a tiebreaking method that is used to determine the winner of a two-legged series. If two teams are tied on aggregate at the end of regulation time of the second leg, the away-goals rule is applied as the first tiebreaker. The winner is the team with the most goals scored away from home.
