Double Chance: Philadelphia or Draw @ ½

Philadelphia Union is the favourites to win this fixture and sail through to the semifinals. A 3-0 on the road in the first leg proved just how far Jim Curtin’s men could go in this fixture. While they only have two victories and two draws against Atlanta Utd in the previous 9 encounters, Philadelphia’s have shown glimpses of going the furthest possible in the CONCACAF Champions League. The hosts have lost two consecutive MLS fixtures but have won all their last three CONCACAF matches with a clean sheet. Together with home advantage, we fancy Philadelphia Union to win the second leg too. We are recommending a double chance bet on the host at a price1/2.

Both Teams to Score: No @ 11/10

Winning the last three fixtures in CONCACAF Champions League is why we are also backing the hosts to keep a clean sheet. While the visitors only lost the first leg after three clean sheets victories in the competition, losing at home makes Atlanta Utd vulnerable coming into this fixture. Gabriel Heinze was outmanoeuvred by Jim Curtin, and are similar fate likely awaits the Atlanta manager. Despite dominating the first leg with 65%, Atlanta could not put any of their seven shots on target past Andre Blake. We expect another dominant performance by Philadelphia’s backline led by Jack Elliott, Olivier Mbaizo and a strong midfield display by skipper Alejandro.

Total Goals: Under 2.5 @ 17/20

Until the first leg when the two teams met, both teams kept two successive clean-sheet victories in CONCACAF Champions League. The second leg is an important fixture and we expect a strong display from both teams. Atlanta has dominated all their last nine fixtures in all competitions, including those which they lost. But can they dominate the possession again? On the contrary, Philadelphia boasts of having the best attackers in the competition such as Kacper Przybylko who currently leads CONCACAF top scorer chart with four goals. However, given the significance of the second leg, we expect a tense game with few goals.

Match Preview: Can Kacper Przybylko Keep His Scoring Form in CONCACAF Quarters?

This is a CONCACAF Champions League fixture between two MSL teams and it would be interesting to see how things play out on Wednesday morning.

Philadelphia Union

After lifting the Supporters Shield trophy in 2020, Philadelphia Union is looking for a major honour. It is all evident in how less focused the hosts are on the MSL. They have bagged important victories in CONCACAF Champions League so far. A 3-0 victory in the first leg gives them an edge over Atlanta Utd before Wednesday. Moreover, Jim Curtin hopes for another victory against Gabriel Heinze in the competition before the two managers meet again in MLS in June and September

Atlanta Utd

Atlanta Utd travels to Chester after a major setback in the first leg. Thus, it is difficult to imagine the visitors coming down from 3-0 to win the second leg. However, anything is possible in football. Interestingly, the visitors have only defeated Philadelphia once on the road. Moreover, Atlanta is yet to win CONCACAF  Champions League trophy, the visitors lifted MLS Cup in 2018 and bagged the Eastern Conference playoffs the same year. They also won U.S Open Cup and Campeones Cup in 2019.
