Portland made it to this round after knocking the modest Marathón out with a convincing 5-0 win at home and recording a 7-2 difference on aggregate. The team coached by Giovanni Savarese hasn't begun the local tournament in the same way, though, but they bounced back before to this game.
The Aguilas, on the other hand, have been doing a brilliant campaign in the Mexican league so far. However, Santiago Solari's boys advanced in the Concachampions with a thin margin as they got past Olimpia on away goals after winning 2-1 in Honduras and losing 0-1 at home. This time, they shouldn't relax as their opponents seem tougher.

Portland Timbers vs Club América: Storylines
Timbers fulfilled expectations by eliminating Marathón and progressing in the CCL. Still, they were shocked by Vancouver Whitecaps in their MLS 2021 debut. Their reaction came quickly, though, as Savarese's side earned a hard-fought triumph over Houston Dynamo. Now, they'll try to keep momentum in a challenging game against a strong club from the region.
América's performances in the Guard1anes Tournament 2021 have been outstanding so far, although their amazing undefeated run came to an end last weekend. The team coached by Santiago Solari held an eight-game unbeaten record until Toluca put three past them in the last round.
Anyways, the Aguilas have already clinched their spot in the domestic championship playoffs and seem to be strong candidates for the trophy. Despite they played with substitutes in the two-legged series against Olimpia, from now on América will have to put their best efforts to fight for the Concachampions.
