A week ago, Tigres drew 1-1 at Estadio Universitario against Pachuca in the opening leg of the CONCACAF Champions League. Hardly a perfect result, but we are still in a position where a win or even a draw could bring us to glory. Here’s what you need to know about the second leg; and remember, the biggest honor in North America and a place in the Club World Cup are at stake.
When, Where, and TV Channels
The game will be played on April 26th, Wednesday night, at 9PM local time (10PM EST). Pachuca are the hosts, and have 4 wins from 4 matches at Estadio Hidalgo during this CCL. The game will be broadcast in the US on Univision Deportes and Fubo TV, in Mexico on Fox Sports, and in the rest of Latin America on Fox Play Latin America. The game will also be available internationally on CONCACAF’s YouTube page.
1st Leg Recap
A quick reminder of where we stand; after a 1-1 draw at home we are in a position where we need a goal to have any hope of winning the tie, as a 0-0 draw will not force extra time because the away goals rule is in place. In the first leg Pachuca got off to a bit of a lucky start, with a very early goal via a deflected free kick. Los Felinos battled back to earn the draw thanks to Ismael Sosa’s 32nd minute goal.
