Ten months after Chivas took Toronto FC down in penalties to win its second Concacaf Champions League title, the annual competition is upon us once more as Leg 1 of the Round of 16 begins tonight. While 12 of the 16 teams in the field have multiple appearances - Herediano leads the way with 9 - it’s a first-ever taste for Guatemalan side Guastatoya, Panama’s Independiente, the Dominican Republic’s Atlético Pantoja, and, of course, Atlanta United. There is the chance of a first-time winner as Monterrey (2013) is the only team to have won it before.
Who will become Concacaf’s representative at the FIFA Club World Cup? We’ll know in two and a half months’ time.
