Atlante headed to Abu Dhabi

Atlante won the inaugural Concacaf Champions League Tuesday when it tied fellow Mexican club Cruz Azul, 0-0, in the second leg of the final in Cancun to win, 2-0, on aggregate. The game marked the end of the season for Atlante and Cruz Azul. Both teams finished last in their group in the Torneo Clausura and did not qualify for the playoffs.

Atlante had won the first leg, 2-0, but the second leg was delayed two weeks because of the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico.

Atlante qualifies for the FIFA Club World Cup, which will be held in Abu Dhabi for the first time in December.

This was the third all-Mexican CONCACAF club championship final in the last four seasons.
