León-Los Angeles, final of the Concacaf

The Argentine Adonis Frías scored a goal on Wednesday in the 79th minute to confirm the victory of the Lion Over the tigers UANL (3-1), with which he qualified for the final of the Concacaf Champions League. The Mexican Fidel Ambriz, the Ecuadorian Ángel Mena and Frías, with the decisive goal of the series, scored for the León of the Argentine coach Nicolás Larcamón, who won the semifinal series 4-3. Tigres cut back with a target from Raymundo Fulgencio.

The Tigers, winners of the first leg by 2-1, came out with an offensive attitude, without trusting the advantage and in minute 3 they were close to going ahead with an arrival of the Frenchman André Pierre Gignac, stopped by the Colombian William Tesillo.

When the visitors seemed dominant, León took the lead with a goal from Ambriz from outside the area and at minute 15 Mena increased the difference by rescuing a ball that bounced off goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán after a shot from Chilean Víctor Dávila.

In minute 30 the Colombian Luis Quiñones, who had been reprimanded, made a strong tackle in midfield. León complained to the Honduran referee Saíd Martínez that he did not reprimand him, which would have meant expulsion. Tigres maintained order at the back, but remained dry in attack and reached halftime threatened with elimination.

The second half started with the Tigres looking for the goal they needed to tie the tie. He found it in minute 68, when Fulgencio, 10 minutes after entering the field, shook off Dávila and beat goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota from the right to tie the series 3-3.

In 1979, León signed the victory in the series with a right-footed goal by Frías from a corner kick that put León in the final, 30 years after losing their only game for the title with Saprissa from Costa Rica. The last week of May and the first week of June, the León will face Los Angeles FC in the MLS final, which eliminated the Philadelphia Union 4-1.
