Toronto FC has turned the historic highs of 2017 into a catastrophic 2018 campaign

Taylor Twellman, Herculez Gomez and Alejandro Moreno share their varying opinions on Toronto FC's approach to the Campeones Cup following their defeat to Tigres.

If you're looking to pinpoint the lowest low in what has become a downer of a campaign for Toronto FC, it would be hard to beat the moment Eriq Zavaleta's own goal crept over the line on Wednesday night with goalkeeper Alex Bono crawling on his hands and knees in a vain attempt to keep the ball out of his net. That goal effectively sealed the inaugural Campeones Cup, giving Tigres an unassailable 3-0 lead in a match the Liga MX side ultimately won 3-1.

And if TFC wouldn't normally fret over losing...

Tigres' win over Toronto FC shows both Campeones Cup's potential and flaws

The first ever Campeones Cup is in the books, after Tigres' 3-1 win over Toronto FC on Wednesday night. But after a week in which no one quite knew what to expect from this meeting of champions of Major League Soccer and Liga MX, or just how much the trophy meant to the teams and leagues participating, Jeff Carlisle and Tom Marshall spoke to those who participated about the Campeones Cup's place in the North American game.

Tigres trump Toronto as Reds' woeful 2018 continues in Campeones Cup

Tigres became the inaugural Campeones Cup champions, defeating Toronto FC thanks to a pair of goals from Jesus Duenas.

Here are three points on Tigres' 3-1 Campeones Cup win over Toronto FC on Wednesday at BMO Field.

1. Tigres' quality rises to the surface

You could say that this was a classic Tigres performance. First there was a feeling-out period, and then once the weaknesses were properly identified, Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti's men went to work.

The lack of communication on a Toronto FC back line consisting of Nick Hagglund, Michael Bradley and Eriq Zavaleta played right into Tigres' hands. The Mexican side...

Domestic struggles of Toronto, Tigres make for interesting timing of Campeones Cup

During an interview on the Max & Herc Podcast, Michael Bradley shared his view of his interaction at the weekend with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

On Wednesday, the best of Major League Soccer and Liga MX square off in the Campeones Cup (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN2). Toronto FC earned its place in the contest by winning MLS Cup last December, while Apertura 2017 winners Tigres claimed a spot in the match by virtue of their Campeones de Campeones win over Clausura 2018 champions Santos.

But despite both clubs' pedigrees, their Campeones Cup meeting comes amid an uncertain and vital part of each's season. Toronto sits in ninth place in the East,...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic teased by David Beckham, Paul Pogba: '500 goals... that makes you really, really old'

Jonathan dos Santos lifts the ball into the box where Zlatan Ibrahimovic spins to hit the ball out of mid-air for his 500th career goal.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted his 500th career goal, but Toronto's offensive explosion of five goals was too much as Toronto defeated LA Galaxy 5-3.
The guys respond to your tweets about Douglas Costa, Chelsea as Premier League contenders, hyping Mauricio Pochettino and Ibrahimovic's 500th goal.

Over the weekend, Zlatan Ibrahimovic attained membership to a rarefied club, joining Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players in world football with 500 career goals to their name.

Ibrahimovic scored in LA Galaxy's 5-3 defeat against Toronto, lashing home a trademark kung-fu roundhouse volley to bring up the milestone.

Messages of congratulations soon flooded in, with David Beckham chief among them -- the former Galaxy midfielder playfully teasing his ex-Paris Saint-Germain...
