Comunicaciones entertain New York City FC in the second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday.

The MLS side put in a solid display in the first leg, securing a 3-1 win and will be aiming to safely see the game through. The hosts have scored just two goals in the competition thus far and will need to bring their A-game to overturn a two-goal deficit.

New York City secured a 4-1 win over Montreal on Saturday at home but have struggled in their travels, so this will be a test of their form away from home.

Comunicaciones vs New York City FC Prediction

The visiting side have an MLS fixture just three days after this game and, having a two-goal advantage from the first leg, they can take a breather here and will happily settle for a draw.

Comunicaciones have made it three wins in a row in the league but have scored just one goal in the CONCACAF Champions League. They are expected to find the back of the net but the in-form visitors are also expected to go all-in for the away goal.

Taking everything into consideration, it seems the game will likely end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Comunicaciones 1-1 New York City FC
