The CONCACAF Champions League resumes on Tuesday and Omar Gonzalez will likely play a vital role.
Gonzalez and Pachuca face a tough test in Costa Rican powerhouse Saprissa as the CCL quarterfinals kick off. The U.S. Men’s National Team centerback started three of the team’s group stage matches as the Mexican side cruised out of a group featuring Honduras’ Olimpia and Belize’s Police United.
Elsewhere in Mexico, the Copa MX continues with several Americans poised to take the field. Paul Arriola, Joe Corona and Tijuana face second-division side Correcaminos while Edgar Castillo and Monterrey take on Dorados.
In England, Danny Williams joins Reading against David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town in a clash of Championship contenders.
Here’s a closer look at the day’s action:
