Leon woke up tonight the ghosts of the last edition in the Concacaf Champions League, after forgiving Toronto FC on at least three occasions, having to settle for a 1-1 draw, in the first leg of the Round of 16 End of the tournament.
Those led by Nacho Ambriz went wild tonight on the field of the Nou Camp Stadium, where their football only reached them to save a tie against the MLS team, which today against the current Liga MX Champion, had their first official match in the last four months.
Until minute 25 the script walked as the emerald painting had written. Before half an hour he went ahead on the scoreboard with a goal from outside the area by Fernando Navarro, and although the visitors had complicated him at the start, after Navarrito’s goal, they were masters and lords of the ball and the actions of danger.
However, and despite knocking on Alex Bono’s door on four or five occasions, three of them very clear, the offense could not make any of the plays, drowning out on several occasions the shouts of goal from the fans who gathered in the stands for this game.
Although they could not increase the advantage it seemed a matter of time for the second of the premises to arrive, but this did not happen it never happened. On the contrary, the Canadians managed to equalize the scoreboard with an own goal by Andrés Mosquera, who tried to deflect a ball so that Jozy Altidore did not get to finish off.
With that little gift, Toronto FC fell back in search of defending the tie. Leon went with everything to the attack. A post in a shot by Joel Campbell, two shots in front of Ángel Mena’s goal, and the lion could not score the goal that gave him the advantage to reach the second leg match that will be played next Wednesday, April 14 in Canadian territory. .
The Ghosts of Conchampions
It is worth remembering the episode that the Fiera lived through last year, when they defeated LAFC 2-0 on the Nou Camp court, and then at the home of the Los Angeles team and Carlos Vela, they were eliminated by a landslide.
