With a masterful performance by Colombian-American Andrés Felipe Perea, the Philadelphia Union humiliated Alianza FC from San Salvador at home with a score of 4-0, in a game in which those led by Jim Curtin left no room for surprise, after having given up a goalless draw on Salvadoran soil. In this way the current MLS runners-up seal their pass to the quarterfinals of the Concachampions.
At minute 41 of the first half, Salvadoran Alexis Renderos was sent off for a double yellowa fact that conditioned the Alliance that it would end up going to the locker room at a disadvantage thanks to the Damion Loew’s headed goal in the 46th minute of the game.
Daniel Gazdag from the 12 steps scored the second goal for Philadelphia after a hand in the area that had to be reviewed and verified by the VAR and that would end up meaning the second goal for the Union that saw their pass to the quarterfinals headed.
Andrés Felipe Perea appeared as a revulsion in the match and was going to become the figure of the match with a strong shot at minute 81 of the game and after only three minutes he placed the second in his personal account and sealed the win for the Philadelphia Union, which won a Concachampions game again after four failed attempts.
In this way, those led by Jim Curtin left no doubts and get their ticket to the quarterfinals where they are waiting for Olimpia from Honduras or the Mexican Atlas, who are playing at the time of finishing this note.
