How to watch
What's at stake?
A first-leg lead in the final, with the second leg coming on Sunday. Last season neither of them made the playoffs, but this season they've surpassed expectations and are potentially 180 minutes away from the title.
At Santos in the first leg, it's going to be a match with plenty of chances and emotion. Toluca isn't the most prolific scoring team, but they have one of the league's strongest defenses, but not in the postseason. After allowing just 13 goals in 17 league games, they have allowed seven goals in four playoff matches. Santos, only outscored by one team in the regular season, has scored eight times in four playoff matches and has the momentum to swing the upset. This is a match that is as likely to end 0-0 as it is 4-4. In the end, Santos has a little edge entering the second leg. Santos 2, Toluca 1.
