Toronto FC will make their maiden appearance in the finals of the CONCACAF Champions League on Tuesday, when they play host to Chivas Guadalajara in the first leg of their title decider.
The Reds have got off to a woeful start in their defence of the Major League Soccer crown but will look to recall their Champions League form by overcoming a third Mexican opponent in a row.
Toronto already knocked Tigres and Club America out at the quarter and semi-final stages, respectively, and coach Greg Vanney's side are yet to lose at home in the competition this season.
Chivas also have previous when it comes to MLS opponents and took the Seattle Sounders and New York Red Bulls out of the running on their path to the finals.

If neither reigning Liga MX champions Tigres nor America could stand up to Toronto over two legs, then Tuesday's hosts can hope home comforts at least help hide any cracks emerging from their domestic form.
The Champions League schedule will have inevitably contributed to a bumpy start in their MLS title defence, with the Reds currently last in the Eastern Conference after losing three of their first four matches this term.
But there's every reason to think Tuesday's hosts are capable of achieving a result after they beat both Tigres and America at BMO Field in the past five weeks. Chivas, on the other hand, failed to scored in either of their visits to Seattle or New York.
ESPN broadcaster Maximiliano Bretos recently lavished praise upon the current Toronto lineup as the best team MLS has ever produced, boasting a particular talisman in forward star Sebastian Giovinco:
Both Vanney and Chivas manager Matias Almeyda rested players for their domestic outings on Saturday, with Toronto falling 2-0 at Colorado Rapids while Guadalajara dropped to a 3-0 defeat at Tijuana.
Toronto, Ontario, is a cold climate this time of year, and it could be Chivas are already showing signs they struggle managing with the conditions further north, as their squad reacted to an unfamiliar setting:
The Mexican challengers haven't conceded in their last three CONCACAF Champions League fixtures, but Toronto have built a foundation at BMO Field, winning their last three in succession at home.
ESPN's Jeff Carlisle provided comment from Vanney, who indicated the health of his squad was only giving him further hope ahead of the first leg:

Toronto FC manager Greg Vanney says he's "more encouraged" about the physical state of his side heading into the Tuesday's first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League against C.D. Guadalajara. "There's some guys who a week ago who weren't quite ready... https://t.co/U4vJ3WM2Vw
It's been 66 years since Chivas won what was then the Champions Cup, but they've yet to lift the trophy in its current guise.
Almeyda could be the man to help them break that duck and extend Mexico's nine-year winning streak in the CONCACAF Champions League, but a failure to perform in Canada could threatens to derail their run at the first hurdle.
