On one side of the bracket, Club América is nearly guaranteed to advance over their Panamanian foe, while Chivas and Seattle have a long way to go to decide a victor. Either way, Wednesday night has a lot in store for fans.

Here’s what to watch for on Wednesday night…

Club América @ Tauro (Club América leads 4-0 on aggregate)

To be completely honest, there isn’t much to say about this second leg. Unless Tauro has some miraculous turnaround, América looks to be booked into the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal. A 4-0 lead is a huge hole for the Panamanian side who entered the quarterfinals after bouncing out FC Dallas.

Expect much of the same from Club América in this Wednesday night meeting, as they close down space and dictate the pace of the game.

Seattle Sounders @ Chivas (Seattle leads 1-0 on aggregate)

This is one of the most intriguing matches in the tournament, especially since the first leg was very evenly matched. Seattle Sounders, however, came out the victors at home. Going on the road with a 1-0 lead is definitely a plus for Seattle, but it’s not a guaranteed ticket to the semis.

Chivas will be without Alan Pulido, so there is some concern on the attacking end. Yet, playing in front of an inspired crowd could be the boost to make a comeback and bounce out their MLS rival. Moreover, getting a victory on Saturday may have offered a little extra hope for the struggling Guadalajara side.

Entering this game with any sort of false confidence will be a bad idea for Chivas, as Seattle has plenty of talent to make that 1-0 hole a lot deeper.
