Pachuca is barely hanging on to a playoff spot in the Liga MX standings, but it's the favorite to take home the CONCACAF Champions League after a 1-1 away draw against Tigres in the first leg of the final.

Manchester United's hopes of making it back to the Champions League this season were dented Friday when it was reported that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the rest of the year because of a knee injury.

Without Ibrahimovic, youngster Marcus Rashford (below) will have to step up and fire the Red Devils to either goal.
