CCL: Omar Gonzalez looks to make history

Omar Gonzalez looks to make history as the third American to win the Concacaf Champions League Wednesday when Pachuca hosts Tigres in the second leg of Wednesday's final.

Gonzalez, who joined Pachuca in 2016 from the LA Galaxy, has started and played every minute of all five of Tuzos' games in the knockout phase of the Concacaf Champions League.

Ventura Alvarado became the first American to win the Concacaf Champions League title twice when Club America won its second straight title in 2016.

Jose Torres won the CCL in 2010 with Pacific and played for Tigres in the 2016 final. He is in the Tigres' travel squad for Wednesday's final but is not expected to play.

Mexican Champions:
2016: Ventura Alvarado (Club America)
2015: Ventura Alvarado (Club America)
2010: Jose Torres (Pachuca)

Mexican Runners-up:
2016: Jose Torres (Tigres)
2013: Herculez Gomez (Santos)
2012: Herculez Gomez (Santos)

Note: Seven Americans played for Real Salt Lake in the 2011 final it lost to Monterrey, 3-2, on aggregate, and five Americans played for the Montreal Impact in the 2015 final it lost to Club America.
