After a scoreless stalemate in the first leg, Pachuca and Deportivo Saprissa meet again at the Estadio Hidalgo for a ticket to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
The Tuzos are seeking their fifth CONCACAF title, while the Costa Rican giants have won the tournament on three occasions.
Diego Alonso’s side arrive on the back of a 1-0 win over Veracruz. Saprissa, on the other hand, took down San Carlos 2-1 over the weekend.
In recent history, Pachuca has been near-impossible to beat at home. In fact, Pachuca have not lost in 27 consecutive games at the Estadio Hidalgo.
The good news for Saprissa is they have already met Pachuca once in a quarterfinal. It was in the 2004 edition of the tournament where los “Morados” defeated Pachuca on penalties. They subsequently went on to lose the final to rivals Liga Deportiva Alajuelense.
