New York City FC is back in the 2020 Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League tonight when Mexican power Club de Fútbol Tigres de la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León – better known simply as Tigres UANL or Tigres – pulls up to Red Bull Arena for Leg 1 of the Quarterfinal.

Being NYCFC’s first foray into continental Champions League play, this match will hopefully mark the continuation of the deepest run in the club’s history and allow supporters to really start dreaming.

Tigres, who avoided a massive upset in the previous round off the strength of a last-minute, corner-kick, goalkeeper-scored winner against Alianza in the previous round, are looking to get back to their second consecutive SCCL Final, where they fell short to city rival Club de Fùtbol Monterrey last year.
