Champions' Cup - DC United 1-2 Chivas Guadalajara

Tonight was not the night for history as DC United fell in Mexico to Chivas Guadalajara.

Chivas did not play a good game on the night, but thanks to a lucky reflection, they will advance to the CONCACAF Champions' Cup final.

Troy Perkins did not lose this game. The second goal just took an odd bounce off his hand. Far more worrisome was United's inability to shut down the lane on their right side. Most of Chivas's best chances were on the counter attack, but with a constant opening on the side, DC is lucky more attacks did not find their way through.

For United, they just could not finish plays that started off so nice. Their goal by Jaime Moreno was beautiful and one for the highlight reels, however in the end DC just could not make it happen.

Chivas now waits for the winner of the Houston-Pachuca series on Thursday. Houston goes in up two goals, so they will not need to make history to advance. However, until that final whistle blows, don’t count out the Mexican side.
