Vancouver have their work cut out for them at the Estadio Universitario in Leg 2, after conceding late and settling for a 1-1 draw at home in last week's opening match.

Away goals are counted in CCC, meaning the 'Caps must win by any scoreline or tie by two goals or more to advance directly to the Round of 16 – where the winner of the Orlando City SC-Cavalry SC bracket awaits.

Should Wednesday's game end in a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes, two 15-minute extra periods will be played. If no winner emerges in extra time, the series will be decided via a penalty-kick shootout.

Tigres not only boast one of Concacaf's most stacked lineups, but also a fearsome talent in the form of André-Pierre Gignac. The prolific French striker was at it again for Los Auriazules in the opening leg, salvaging a crucial draw (and away goal) for Tigres with a stunning free-kick two minutes from time.

Gignac & Co. are now set to host the final 90 minutes of the series at "El Volcán," where they haven't lost in almost a year. Tigres also have history on their side against the Whitecaps, having never lost to their MLS opponent in four previous official encounters (3W-0L-1D).

Additionally, the lone game between both sides on Mexican soil favored Tigres: a 2-0 decision in the semifinal first leg of the 2016-17 CCC.

High-profile free-agent signing Damir Kreilach opened his Vancouver account in last week's first leg, striking from close range in his maiden Whitecaps appearance.

While not the ideal outcome, the 1-1 result still allows the 'Caps to control their destiny ahead of Wednesday's decider. Any win, or a draw by two goals or more, sends them through to the next round. Any loss, or scoreless draw, sends them home. A 1-1 scoreline sends the tie into extra time.

On that note, Vancouver took Tigres to the limit in last year's Leagues Cup tournament, playing to a 1-1 draw in the Round of 32 before eventually falling 5-3 in the resulting PK shootout.
