The CONCACAF Champions League 2021 will bring us another thrilling duel today at the Estadio Azteca between Club America and Portland Timbers for the second leg of the quarterfinals. Following a dramatic ending to last week's clash in PPL Park, these two will face in Mexico for a spot in the next round. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about this game, such as information, storylines, predictions, odds, and even how to watch it in the US.
The Aguilas have recently finished their regular season campaign in the Liga MX, in which they finished second and qualified directly to the quarterfinals. Santiago Solari's team had a great performance in the domestic league so far, unlike in the regional tournament.
Portland Timbers' situation would be the opposite. Despite the MLS 2021 only had three weeks up to now, Giovanni Savarese's boys began their campaign poorly. However, things seem to be working out better for them in the Concachampions. Will they go on like this to shock the Mexican giants at the iconic Estadio Azteca?

Club America vs Portland Timbers: Storylines
These two head to the rematch after a very dramatic - and controversial - ending to the first leg. Club America were in front most of the second half until Portland were awarded a penalty in added time. Despite the polemic unleashed for that call, Felipe Mora put the equalizer at the 97th minute and the series is wide open.
Following that upsetting result, the Aguilas finished the Liga MX regular season strongly beating 1-0 Pumas UNAM. Now it's time for Santiago Solari's team to step up in the CONCACAF Champions League, where it didn't impress so far. America got into this round after knocking Olimpia out on away goals. Will they show a convincing display to advance to the semifinals?
Meanwhile, Portland Timbers travel to Mexico full of hope after they snatched a good result in the final minutes of the first leg. Savarese's side is still alive in the series and will have the opportunity to make a huge statement against a powerful side from the region. However, it will need to leave behind the hurtful 1-4 loss at Dallas and take this game as a chance to start bouncing back.
