Only four teams remain in the CONCACAF champions league, and it is once again the battle of North America: Liga MX vs MLS.

Now that MLS teams have a series under their belt, it is looking like a very intriguing semifinal, maybe even the best we have seen in recent years.

Here’s what is to look forward to this upcoming week…

Tigres vs Vancouver (Tuesday, March 14)

One of the CONCACAF and Liga MX big dogs, Tigres, will face off against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Tigres are coming off a 4-1 aggregate against Pumas, which didn’t start great at home with a 1-1 draw. However, a 3-0 bashing on the road was proof that Tigres are not a team to take lightly. Their arsenal is looking very dangerous as they head towards their ultimate goal in the tournament.

Vancouver are coming into the semifinal with confidence of their own. A convincing 2-0 defeat of New York showed that Vancouver have plenty of talent of their own. If they can put the pieces together and be patient, they may have something in store for Tigres.

FC Dallas vs Pachuca (Wednesday, March 15)

Pachuca may have been lackluster on the road against Saprissa but they came home and absolutely toyed with their opponent. A 4-0 blasting of Saprissa sent Pachuca to the semifinal where they will meet FC Dallas.

FC Dallas, similarly to Pachuca, dismantled their CONCACAF foe in Árabe Unido. A 4-0 home win was plenty enough for FC Dallas, and the 1-2 loss on the road was nothing but semantics for the revamped MLS side.

Things also look more positive for FC Dallas in this battle, as Pachuca star Hirving Lozano is out one month with a serious ankle gash he suffered in Liga MX play. That does not mean Pachuca will be hanging their heads, but it does add some boost to FC Dallas’ morale.
