It's advantage Chivas in the CONCACAF Champions League final after the Liga MX side defeated Toronto FC 2-1 in Tuesday's first leg at BMO Field.

It took just 63 seconds for Mexico international Rodolfo Pizarro to open the scoring for the visitors, turning in Isaac Brizuela's cross from eight yards out.

Jonathan Osorio levelled for Toronto 17 minutes later, tapping-in Marco Delgado's cross at the back post.

Alan Pulido, however, fired in an all-important second away goal for Chivas in the 72nd minute to give Matias Almeyda's side the upper-hand heading into the return leg at Estadio Chivas.
