Orlando City will be hoping to advance to the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League as they host Tigres UANL in the second leg.
Starting in 2023 MLS With five points in three matches, Orlando City will now look to continue this run of form in the CONCACAF Champions League.
However, it wouldn’t be easy to dispatch the tigers.
The Mexico national team is currently in third place in the Liga MX table, just seven points behind first place, and is looking to clinch its second CCL title in three years.
If the first game of a tie is any indication of how the second game could go, both sides have a good chance of advancing.

Orlando is likely to miss centre-back Antonio Carlos, who is still recovering from a leg injury. Rodrigo Schlegel will likely replace him to pair alongside Robin Jansson and Kyle Smith.
Tigres is coming off a disappointing 2-0 loss against Club America. They will be looking to recapture that form with a CCL win in Orlando.
As both sides look forward, the edge must go to Tigres.
Exploria Stadium can be a tough place to play with the rowdy fans and Florida humidity, but the Tigres have won the competition before and will know how to weather those odds.
Tigres also have better depth, which will come in handy if players start cramping up due to dampness and tough handling on the field.
