Club America aims for Copa Sudamericana title

Club America aims to bring the Copa Sudamericana title to Mexico for the second straight year, but must overcome a 3-2 first-leg deficit when it faces Argentina's Arsenal in Buenos Aires in the second leg on Wednesday (TV: Fox Sports en Espanol, 7:30 pm ET). Arsenal has never won an international title or even an Argentine championship in its 50-year existence, and has never placed a player on the Argentine national team.

Club America has won 10 Mexican league crowns, six CONCACAF championships and two Interamericana Cups.

Pachuca won the 2006 Copa Sudamericana with a final win over Colo Colo of Chile. In 2005, the Mexico's UNAM Pumas fell to Boca Juniors in a penalty shootout.
