Both teams have a lot at stake in this match. Alongside the pursuit of Concacaf glory, a spot in the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup and the 2024 FIFA Intercontinental Cup is on the line. The winner will not only lift the Concacaf Champions League trophy but also have the opportunity to represent the region in prestigious international competitions.

The path to victory won't be easy for either side. Orlando City SC, led by coach Oscar Pareja, recently suffered a painful defeat to Inter Miami CF, raising questions about their form and mentality ahead of this crucial showdown. Players like goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and forwards Facundo Torres and Luis Muriel will have to step up to ensure a solid and determined performance.

On the other hand, Tigres UANL enters this clash after a convincing victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Despite their relatively low position in the Clausura table, the Mexican team boasts a wealth of experience and talent that makes them a formidable threat in any competition. With players like André-Pierre Gignac leading the attack and Nahuel Guzmán guarding the goal, Tigres is ready to impose their game against Orlando City SC.
