📝 Toronto FC 1-3 Tigres: The inaugural Campeones Cup goes to Liga MX

Tigres got a little revenge on Toronto FC for their CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final loss, as they won the Campeones Cup in Canada.

The one-off competition will be held annually between the MLS Cup champions and the Liga MX Campeón de Campeones winners.

Jesus Dueñas scored the first two goals of the night to help add another trophy to their packed locker.

Dueñas opened the scoring in the 36th minute when he was able to find space behind the Toronto defense and beat goalkeeper Alex Bono at the near post.

Just after the hour-mark, Dueñas doubled their lead in some style. Off a corner, he struck a superb first-time strike into the bottom left corner from around 25 yards out.

For TFC, it went from bad to worse in a matter of moments. Defender Eriq Zavaleta deflected a centering pass that trickled past Bono into the net for a 3-0 Tigres lead.

Substitute Lucas Janson cut the deficit from the penalty spot late after Dueñas was called for a handball.

Tigres have now won seven titles overall since 2015.
