Real Salt Lake will face Tigres UANL in February in a two-legged CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal in late February. With RSL the higher seed, they'll host the second game of the series.

Tigres, who led Liga MX in the 2015 Clausura with 29 points, and took second in the 2014 Clausura, have bounced around the Mexican league table — in the last four years, they've ranked anywhere from first (2013) to 14th (2014).

Tigres defeated Metapan (El Salvador) and Herediano (Costa Rica) in their group to progress, but they also had no shutouts in that time.
