About 16,000 tickets have been sold for Tuesday’s home leg in a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal against Mexico’s Tigres UANL, according to a Sounders FC spokesman.

Kickoff at CenturyLink Field is set for 7 p.m. and tickets are available.

Seattle trails in the series, 1-0, and is hoping for a nice crowd to help spur the team farther than it has ever advanced in the tournament.

“We hope our fans turn out in big numbers because we have an opportunity here to advance to the semifinals,” said coach Sigi Schmid, who described the one-goal deficit as a “solvable equation.”
