Club León and Toronto FC clash today in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League 2021 Round of 16. This match-up to be played at the Nou Campo is one of the most exciting of the draw. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about this game, such as information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch it in the US.
The Mexican team will begin its campaign in the regional tournament after showing great improvement in the local league. The reigning Liga MX champions had a difficult start to the season, but this match seems to come in great timing for them.
The situation is different for their upcoming opponents. The Canadians haven't played in 2021 yet - at least not officially - as the MLS still is in the preseason stage. The first task for Chris Armas in charge of Toronto will be a tough one, as he would have wished to have more games with his new team before such a hard challenge.

Club León vs Toronto FC: Storylines
León will be back in the hunt for CONCACAF's major prize for the second straight year, after being knocked out at this same stage in the last edition. Ignacio Ambriz's side has started the domestic championship with the wrong foot, as they were stuck at the low places having won only twice after ten rounds. However, the current champions bounced back recently to climb up positions in the standings.
While they head into this clash with optimism after grabbing good results lately, their next rival will be returning to action after a long time. Toronto FC haven't taken part in an official match since November 2020, when they lost against Nashville in the Conference quarterfinals. As they still are in MLS offseason, TFC will face their first game of the year with a new head coach, Chris Armas, as Greg Vanney left for Los Angeles Galaxy.
