Philadelphia and Alianza FC went 0-0 in the first leg. This gave the Union a 4-0 aggregate score.

These two teams are playing Tuesday night in the second leg. Olimpia won the first leg 4-1.

Andrés Perea came in the second half. He then scored two goals. These were the final two goals of the game.

Daniel Gazdag scored on a penalty kick. This came after an Alianza FC player had a handball in the box.

The penalty kick goal made up for the goal that he scored on a header that was taken off the board. VAR called Gazdag offsides.

Damion Lowe scored the Union’s first goal of the game, as he scored in stoppage time of the first half. He scored one minute in the two-minute extra time.
