Concacaf unveiled the rosters for each team heading into the Champions League Round of 16 Saturday. The continental competition is set to start on Tuesday. 

Each list contains a maximum of 35 players per team, three who need to be goalkeepers. Teams electing to select less than 35 players will be able to add to their list until 44 hours before a match. Once a player is added to a team’s Champions League roster, they will remain on it permanently. 

Teams will select a group of 23 players from their list for each match 44 hours before kickoff. Only 18 players, including two goalkeepers, will be allowed to participate on a game day.

Starting off on Tuesday, Atlanta United take on FC Motagua in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and LAFC meet Liga MX side Club Leon at Estadio Leon. On Wednesday, the Montreal Impact travel to Costa Rica to take on Deportivo Saprissa at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa Ayma. 

To close off the first leg for MLS squads, the Seattle Sounders also fly to San Pedro Sula to take on Olimpia on Thursday. On the same night, NYCFC take the field in Alajuela, Costa Rica to play A.D. San Carlos.
