Eight clubs are still in contention to lift the 2020 Concacaf Champions League trophy and win the right to represent the confederation at the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020 at the end of the year.

There are teams with pedigree in the tournament remaining as well as a few new ones looking to make history. FIFA.com previews each tie, so you know what to watch out for as the week progresses.

Montreal Impact v Olimpia (Leg 1: 10 March, Leg 2: 17 March)

Finalists in 2015 Montreal are looking to return to the decider with Thierry Henry at the helm. The most decorated club in Honduras' history stands in their way in the shape of Olimpia. Consisting of mostly domestic-based players, head coach Pedro Troglio's side will be considered underdogs but they will be no pushovers, as they proved by defeating 2019 MLS Cup champions Seattle Sounders 4-2 on penalties in Seattle after the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.

Montreal will be boosted by the signing of designated player Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur. The Kenyan defensive midfielder stated his ambitions during his introductory press conference: "I bring passion. I love the game. I love helping my team-mates. I bring fight. I'm willing to do everything to get the win. On the pitch, I demand a lot because I love to win."
