Javier Morales rescued a draw for MLS side Real Salt Lake to earn themselves a 2-2 away draw with Monterrey in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League final at Technologico stadium in Mexico.

The Mexican side took the lead through Aldo de Nigris in the 18th minute, but Nat Borchers levelled for the MLS team in the 35th minute.

Monterrey, however, took the lead again with a goal from Humberto Suaza. When it looked like the match had been won, up popped Morales to score an equalizing goal with a few minutes left to play.

The return leg takes place on April 27th in Sandy, Utah. Should RSL win the tie, they will become the first MLS side to win the Champions League since the LA Galaxy managed it in the year 2000.
