Monterrey Vs. Chorrillo, 2012 CONCACAF Champions League: Two-Time Defending Champions Win, 5-0

Monterrey were supposed to begin their 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions League campaign with their second team because that is really all it would have taken to beat Chorrillo at home. Instead, they sent out their best team to take on their Panamanian opponents and the two-time defending champions didn't just win, they crushed Chorrillo, 5-0, to start off their tournament perfectly.

Jose Maria Basanta and Angel Reyna did most of the work for Monterrey, scoring twice each at Estadio Tecnologico. The scoring started in the eighth minute when Basanta found himself unmarked on a corner kick, giving himself an easy minute. Just before the halftime whistle, Reyna got on the scoresheet and the home side were 2-0 up at the break.

The Rayados completely dominated the match from the beginning and could have scored more than two in the first half. They were just as dominant in the second half too, but it took until the final 13 minutes before they got back on the scoreboard. Basanta and Reyna each added their second goal of the match and Dario Carreno added one of his own as Monterrey showed Chorrillo what Champions League quality play looks like, and top flight Champions League play at that.
