Club America tops Montreal Impact for CONCACAF CL crown

After the CONCACAF championship went to a Mexican club for a 10th straight year with Club America's come-from-behind triumph over the Montreal Impact in the CCL final second leg, Liga MX took the opportunity to take a little social media shot at MLS.

America goes to Canada, wins another CONCACAF CL crown for Mexico

Given that no MLS team has ever won the CCL in its current format and Mexican teams have won each of the seven editions since the changeover to group stage/knockout stage, Liga MX teams have grown accustomed to taking part in the FIFA Club World Cup. The Mexican top flight made sure to remind MLS of that fact immediately after America's 4-2 (5-3 on aggregate) win at Stade Olympique.

Translated: MLS is headed for another December vacation, while we're headed for the Club World Cup. 

Given that the U.S. men's national team just topped Mexico by a Dos-A-Cero scoreline and the two could be on a collision course in this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup, the rivalry between the two nations and their respective top-flight leagues is alive and well.
