Major League Soccer clubs scored a pair of impressive results against Mexican competition on Tuesday night in CONCACAF Champions League action.

Peruvian striker Andres Mendoza scored an 87th-minute winner to lead the Columbus Crew to a hard-fought 1-0 winagainst Santos Laguna at Crew Stadium. The Crew was able to shake off Saturday's embarrassing 4-0 loss to deliver a strong performance and move into first place in its Champions League group.

Toronto FC followed up it stirring late win against Houston last weekend with a 0-0 tie against Cruz Azul in Mexico City. TFC sat several regulars, including goalkeeper Stefan Frei and Dwayne DeRosario, but still was able to shut down a dangerous Cruz Azul attack.

Here are the highlights from both matches:

CREW 1, SANTOS LAGUNA 0

CRUZ AZUL 0, TORONTO FC 0

What did you think of these matches? Impressed with the Crew's victory? Surprised to see Toronto take a point in Mexico?
