On March 6, the New York Red Bulls will face Club Tijuana, a team featuring several American players. The Red Bulls topped Olimpia, 3-1, on aggregate in their opening series while Xolos edged Motagua, 2-1, in their matchup.

The other MLS-Liga MX clash occurs on March 7 when the Seattle Sounders take the field after routing Santa Tecla with a strong second leg. Their opponent is Chivas de Guadalajara, who enter the quarterfinals riding high following a 7-0 aggregate beatdown of Cibao.
