Uriel Antuna scored again to lead Cruz Azul past host CF Montreal in the finale of a quarterfinal CONCACAF Champions League series on Wednesday.

The Mexican side emerged with a 2-1 aggregate victory in the two-game, total-goal series following a 1-1 tie on Wednesday.

Antuna fired home a right-footed volley from 10 yards in the 44th minute to put Cruz Azul in front. His goal in the 20th minute on March 9 in Mexico City was the only score in the teams’ first game.

Rudy Camacho scored for Montreal in the 79th minute off a short corner kick as the action continued while several Cruz Azul players were tending to a Montreal player who had followed.

Cruz Azul joins New York City FC in the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals. Another semifinal spot was set to be determined later Wednesday night as the New England Revolution opposed Pumas in Mexico City. The Revolution led 3-0 after the first leg.
