UNAM is coming off of a semifinals win over Cruz Azul. A pair of Juan Ignacio Dinenno goals in the first leg put Pumas ahead 2-1 heading into the second leg. In that second match, neither side could manage a goal.

While Pumas has never won this iteration of the Champions League, the team did win three titles in the CONCACAF Champions’ Cup during the 1980s. That competition morphed into the current Champions League.

In the Liga MX Clausura, Pumas is heading into the final matchday in 12th place, giving it the final postseason slot for now, but it only has a one point lead over 13th and 14th place Mazatlán and Toluca.

Projected Pumas UNAM starting XI: Velarde, Freire, ORTIZ, Mozo, Corozo, López, Meritão, de Olivera, Dinenno, Álvarez; Talavera

In an all MLS semifinal match, the Sounders defeated New York City FC by a 4-2 aggregate score, fueled by a 3-1 advantage in the first leg, with Albert Rusnák, Jordan Morris and Nicolás Lodeiro each netting a goal in that contest.

Seattle’s last Champions League appearance was in 2020, when the team advanced to the Round of 16. Its best showing was in 2012, when the team advanced to the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Seattle’s 2022 MLS campaign is off to a rocky start. Through seven matches, the Sounders have just two wins and currently sit in 11th place in the Western Conference. There’s still plenty of time to move up, but the team is already five points back of the final playoff spot.

Projected Seattle Sounders starting XI: Tolo, Arreaga, Ragen, Roldan, Rusnák,Paulo, Morris, Lodeiro, Roldan, Ruidíaz; Frei
