The time has arrived for the second-leg CONCACAF Champions League final between Club America and Tigres UANL this Wednesday, April 27, 2016 (6:45 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azteca. The winner of the Concachampions 2015-16 will finally be decided when the two best teams in the region face-off to decide who will represent CONCACAF in this year’s FIFA Club World Cup.
Club America is the favorite to win the final as they defeated Tigres on the road last week in the first-leg by a 2-0 score. The team coached by Ignacio Ambriz enters Wednesday night’s game with the score in his favor, and with the support of his team’s fans. Nonetheless, it will not be an easy contest as the visitors will most likely style an offensive system to attempt and score goals early into the game. If the ‘aguilas’ win the final, they will represent the region for the second year in a row.
Tigres of UANL have all the pressure against them. After losing at home last week, the team coached by Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferretti must finish the first 90 minutes of Wednesday’s match by a 2-0 score in order to lead the game into overtime. They will most likely have to battle against America’s counter-attacking system, making it very difficult for star players like Andre Gignac or Javier Aquino to have clear goal scoring opportunities. If Tigres become champions, it would be their second title within the past calendar year.
