The upcoming clash in the CONCACAF Champions Cup quarterfinals will see Tigres UANL take on the Columbus Crew in what promises to be a challenging encounter. With both teams eyeing a spot in the semifinals, the Black & Gold will have their work cut out against the Liga MX powerhouse.

In the current Liga MX standings, Tigres UANL finds themselves in fourth place in the Clausura 2024 tournament, trailing behind the likes of Club América, Monterrey, and Toluca. With a positive record of 7 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses in 13 matches, Tigres are a formidable opponent with a history of success in Mexican football.

Looking at their recent form, Tigres has had a mixed run of results, with two losses in their last five games in Liga MX play. However, the team comes into this quarterfinal clash on the back of three consecutive wins in all competitions, including a notable victory over Orlando City SC in the previous round of the CONCACAF Champions Cup.

Head coach Robert Dante Siboldi typically sets up Tigres in a 4-5-1 formation, with key players like Juan Brunetta and Andre-Pierre Gignac playing crucial roles in the team’s tactics and attack. Brunetta, the creative Argentinian midfielder, has quickly made an impact since joining Tigres, while Gignac, the veteran French striker, remains a potent goal-scoring threat with a prolific record.

The first leg of the quarterfinal tie will see Columbus Crew host Tigres UANL at Lower.com Field, with the second leg scheduled to take place in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. With the stakes high in this knockout stage of the CONCACAF Champions Cup, both teams will be looking to secure a positive result to advance to the next round.
