Montreal Impact join Red Bulls in Champions League Group 3

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

It'll be the Impact who will round out Group 3.

Last night Montreal Impact midfielder Felipe scored in stoppage time -- slotting home the rebound from a Marco Di Vaio rocket that clanged off the crossbar -- ensuring the Impact their second straight Canadian Championship, and along with it, a berth in this year's CONCACAF Champions League.

If you're wondering why we care, last week the competition's groups were drawn, with the Red Bulls heading into Group 3 with Salvadorian club C.D. FAS. The third team was the winner of the Toronto FC-Impact two legged final.

The first leg was played the night of the draw in Toronto, and ended with the Impact sitting in the drivers seat thanks to a 73rd minute goal from Justin Mapp and the away goals rule. Felipe put the nail in the coffin last night, to fully see them through.

Highlights:


If league position is any indication, the Impact's win is a good thing. The team has 10 points through 12 games, good for last in the east and second to last overall, with only Chivas USA's game in hand keeping them from the absolute bottom.

However, the Impact have killed giants in the competition before, making a run to the knockout stages as a USL team in 2008-09.
