Liga MX: Toluca 0 Tijuana 2

Tijuana have been crowned Mexican champions after defeating heavyweights Toluca in the Liga MX final just a year after promotion.

Few gave Tijuana a chance against the 10-time champions but Antonio Mohamed’s side thoroughly deserved their 4-1 aggregate win over two legs, with a brave 2-0 away victory at a partisan Estadio Nemesio Diez in Toluca sealing the club’s first ever title.

Richard Ruiz and Duvier Riascos scored for Tijuana within a minute in the second half to turn the game on its head.

The visitors were grateful to make it to the break with the match goalless, a result that would have been enough for Tijuana to claim the title.

But Ruiz struck to send the travelling contingent into ecstasy on 70 minutes and the home side barely had a chance to reset before Riascos latched onto a through ball and rounded Alfredo Talavera to slide the ball into an empty net.

Just a season after winning the Mexican Apertura title, Tijuana’s story is quite astounding given the club was only formed in 2007 after a long line of defunct teams in the US-border city.

Tijuana won the first leg 2-1 at the Estadio Caliente and denied Toluca the chance to equal Guadalajara Chivas’ record 11 titles.
