MEXICO CITY – Aldo De Nigris scored at the final whistle to give two-time defending champion Monterrey a 1-0 victory over Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday night, sending the Mexican team to the CONCACAF Champions League final with a 3-1 aggregate score in the two-game semifinal.
Monterrey will face fellow Mexican club Santos Laguna in the final. Santos Laguna advanced Tuesday night, tying the Seattle Sounders 1-1 for a 2-1 aggregate victory.
De Nigris has four goals in the tournament to help put Monterrey in position to become the first team to win the regional tournament three straight times since Mexico's Cruz Azul in 1969-1971.
