A pair of draws were played out in the CCL, with the two home sides held in the first leg of the quarterfinals.

Eduardo Vargas scored for Tigres UANL as they were held by Pumas UNAM in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal.

Vargas, who joined the club in January, netted for the Liga MX outfit for the first time in the 1-1 draw on Wednesday.

The Chile international's 25-yard effort for the home side was canceled out by Matias Britos just after the hour mark.

The New York Red Bulls were held to a 1-1 draw at home against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Kekuta Manneh had given Vancouver a 39th-minute lead with a header, but that advantage should have disappeared shortly after the break.

The home side was awarded a penalty but Sacha Kljestan's Panenka attempt was kept out by David Ousted.

Bradley Wright-Phillips leveled for the Red Bulls in the 62nd minute and Vancouver was dealt a further blow when Cristian Techera saw red for a rash challenge.

The second legs of the ties will be played next month.
