MLS teams have won the Champions Cup in recent years and New York City FC with this victory over Atlas extends the dominance of MLS over Liga MX
It seems that the best days of the two-time Mexican champion Atlas are over. The ‘Foxes’ do not add good numbers in Liga MX and this time they fell to New York City FC in the Champions Cup.
Almost without resistance, the ‘The American Citizens’ beat the Aztecs in the iconic Yankee Stadium in New York with so many South Americans from Peru’s Alexander Callens (4) and Argentina’s Maxi Morález (49).
With this victory, there is talk on networks of the “paternalism” that MLS teams have over those of Liga MX. Columbus Crew and Atlanta United have beaten Cruz Azul and Águilas del América in that tournament in the last two years.
Liga MX savored the honeys of this trophy only in its first edition, when the UNAM Pumas defeated Toronto FC in 2019.
The ticket office surprised the organizers of the event. Yankee Stadium received more than 25,000 spectators, most of them fans of the Guadalajara Atlas. Videos of how Mexicans populated the sports venue and filled the streets of New York with joy were shared on social networks.
Regarding the match, those led by Diego Cocca had timid attempts to reach the area, led by the Colombian Julián Quiñones and the Argentine Julio Furch, but everything was futile, the ‘New Yorkers’ knew how to maintain the result and despite losing Valentín ‘ Taty’ Castellanos a few weeks ago, continues with a good level.
