On Sunday, Los Angeles FC will face Club Leon in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final at BMO Stadium where a new winner will be crowned.
Neither team has ever held the trophy, and the Mexicans hold the upper hand after a 2-1 home victory over the Black and Gold in the first leg on Wednesday.
LAFC have 90 minutes to try to claw their way back into the clash after falling behind Leon in the first leg in Mexico.
Los Angeles' goal deep into stoppage time in that game does cut the distance between them and La Fiera but away goals do not count in this competition's final.
The Black and Gold have outscored their last two CCL opponents 6-0 at BMO Stadium since losing at home in the second leg of their Round of 16 ties against Alajuelense, but they have only won one of their previous three matches played there in all competitions.
Those recent landslides CCL wins should hint that this tie is far from over as Steve Cherundolo's men have overturned their share of deficits over the last year.
Job one has been accomplished for Leon and aside from the late goal conceded, Nicolas Larcamon could not be happier with his team's performance at home in the first leg.
His men were on the front foot for the majority of the first half, and when faced with a late surge by LAFC, they remained disciplined and patient at the back, blocking the majority of their opponents' efforts.
