MLS and Liga MX teams will battle for CONCACAF CL

MLS and Liga MX teams will decide this year's CONCACAF Champions League winner

October 22, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
The current tournament's champion, Club América, will face Seattle Sounders in the Quarter-final stage. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Galaxy will play against Liga MX holder Santos.

Just days after Mexico's National Team defeated the USMNT to win the CONCACAF Cup, the countries' top tier teams will battle to determine the 2015-2016 winner of the CONCACAF Champions League. With each league being represented by four teams, MLS' sides will try to win their first-ever CONCACAF title, while they deny Mexican teams the chance to play in the 2016 Club World Cup.

Here's how the Quarter-final series will be played.

(1) Club América vs Seattle Sounders (8)

Las Águilas, the current title holders, will try to win back-to-back trophies for the first time ever, but in order to do that they will have to beat Seattle Sounders first. Among the eight teams that made it to the knockout stage, América won the most points (10) and presented the best goal difference (+7). Strikers Oribe Peralta and Clint Dempsey will re-live their rivalry with their National Teams, having played against each other on October 10.

(2) DC United vs Querétaro (7)

United fell one goal short of becoming the tournament's top seed, as they ended up with the same amount of points as Club América. Their clash against Querétaro will not be an easy one, since Los Gallos will try to prove they can be true contenders without Ronaldinho, who left them prior to the start of the ongoing Apertura 2015.

(3) Real Salt Lake vs Tigres UANL (6)

RSL also tallied ten points in the Group Stage, but their goal difference wasn't as impressive as América's or DC United's (+3). Their matchup against Tigres will give fans the chance to watch Andre-Pierre Gignac up close, as the French striker is working his magic with the yellow-and-blue side. For Tigres, this will be a good chance to redeem themselves after losing the Copa Libertadores final a few months ago against River Plate, and former El Tri coach Ricardo Ferretti might prove quite useful for them.

(4) Santos Laguna vs LA Galaxy (5)

The last Quarter-final series will feature both leagues' current champions, with Santos Laguna currently trying to get used to Pako Ayestarán's tactics. In order to defeat Los Laguneros, The Galaxy will have Mexican playmaker Giovani Dos Santos available, being this the first time "Gio" faces a competitive match against a team from his home country.

The first legs of these matchups will be held on February 23, while the second legs will be held one week later.
