Alphonso Davies and Fredy Montero scored in Thursday's second leg as the Vancouver Whitecaps won their quarterfinal.

Vancouver Whitecaps made history by advancing to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time after defeating New York Red Bulls 2-0.

Alphonso Davies and former Sporting CP forward Fredy Montero scored in Thursday's second leg as the Whitecaps won the all-MLS quarterfinal tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Carl Robinson's Vancouver will face Mexican outfit Tigres UANL in the final four.

The Whitecaps and Red Bulls had played out a first-leg draw at New York last week to leave the contest in the balance.

But Davies quickly swung the tie in Vancouver's favour with a goal in the fifth minute at BC Place Stadium, keeping his composure to place the ball beyond Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles inside the six-yard box.

Montero - on loan from Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda - then came off the bench to make his debut and the Colombian's impact was immediate.

After replacing Marcel de Jong in the 67th minute, Montero finished emphatically from a corner nine minutes later to seal the victory.
