The Columbus Crew can make some serious headway in reaching the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in its Group B match against Santos Laguna (8 p.m., Fox Soccer Channel).
Columbus trails Santos by one point in the group, and both have created separation from third-place Municipal and fourth-place Joe Public. With a victory at Crew Stadium, the Major League Soccer side would take control of the group and put itself in a very advantageous spot.
Toronto FC is in a less favorable position, facing Cruz Azul (10 p.m., FSC) and needing a win in Mexico – which would be a first in the CCL for an MLS side – to keep pace in Group A. In order to do so, the Reds will have to find a way to contain Cruz Azul striker Javier Orozco, who has scored 10 goals in four Champions League matches (qualifiers included).
