Since the start of the competition, both Columbus Crew and Tigres UANL have showcased their determination and skill, advancing with impressive victories over their opponents. Columbus Crew, as the winner of the 2023 MLS Cup, entered the competition only in the round of sixteen but did not disappoint, overcoming Houston Dynamo FC with a 2-1 aggregate. Meanwhile, Tigres UANL displayed their dominant strength by defeating both Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Orlando City SC with convincing aggregate scores of 4-1 and 4-2, respectively.

Looking at Columbus Crew, the team led by coach Wilfried Nancy is confident in their collective abilities, but the status of star Cucho Hernández remains uncertain after his absence in the last game against Nashville SC. With the expectation of an even bigger performance in this crucial match, players like Darlington Nagbe and Aidan Morris assume key roles in midfield, while the hope of seeing Diego Rossi score his first goal of the year is present among the fans.

On the other hand, Tigres UANL, under the command of coach Robert Siboldi, boasts a stellar lineup led by prolific French forward André-Pierre Gignac. In addition to Gignac, Mexican players such as Ozziel Herrera, Sebastián Córdova, and Diego Lainez add depth and quality to the team. With an impressive history in the Concacaf Champions Cup, including the 2020 title, Tigres enters this match with confidence and determination to secure another victory.

The importance of this showdown goes beyond the Concacaf Champions Cup quarterfinals. The winner will not only advance to the competition’s semifinals but also secure their spot in the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup and the 2024 FIFA Intercontinental Cup, along with claiming regional bragging rights and a significant cash prize.

With the second leg of the series awaiting at Tigres’ Estadio Universitario on April 9th, the pressure is on Columbus Crew to secure an advantage in this initial home encounter. However, if Tigres can score crucial away goals in this first leg, the challenge for Columbus Crew will become even tougher in the return leg.
