In an all-Mexican affair, Monterrey and Club America meet on Thursday at the Estadio BBVA in Guadalupe in the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League Final.

The Rayados clinically beat Cruz Azul 5-1 overall in the semi-finals, while Los Aguilas defeated the MLS Philadelphia Union team 4-0 in two games.

This is Monterrey’s second final in three years, having won the title in 2019, as America reaches the final for the first time since winning the title in 2016.

The teams are no strangers to each other, having faced each other on several occasions in domestic Liga MX matches over the years, while their last meeting was during the 2021 Clausura in January.
