More Details

Salomón Rondón, the competition’s best striker, scored goals in the 12th and 67th minutes, making it difficult for Columbus to control him.

In the 32nd minute, Emilio Rodríguez added another goal for Pachuca, which helped the Mexican team defeat the 2023 MLS Cup champions and win its sixth CCC championship ever.

At Estadio Hidalgo, the Crew had opportunities, such as in the 76th minute when Jacen Russell-Rowe hit the crossbar.

However, they hardly ever posed a threat to Carlos Moreno, the custodian, and their two best players, Diego Rossi and Cucho Hernández, missed opportunities to score.

Columbus defeated Liga MX heavyweights Tigres UANL in the quarterfinals and CF Monterrey in the semifinals to get to the championship game. However, with a championship at stake, head coach Wilfried Nancy’s side was unable to complete a perfect three-way set in Mexico.
