Philadelphia Union will play at home for the first time in 2021 to face Saprissa in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League 2021 today. The MLS side returned to the pitch in a strong way last week, earning an important victory in the first leg. The U will try to secure a place in the next round of the competition before starting the Major League Soccer season this weekend. Check out the match preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch it in the US.
Jim Curtin’s squad faced its first game of the year with success, getting the win in the beginning of the Concachampions campaign. An goal from Kacper Przybyłko in the first half sealed the result, which gave advantage to Philadelphia ahead of the rematch.
Unlike their opponents, Saprissa are playing regularly as they find themselves in the middle of the season in Costa Rica’s first division. Their current position isn’t bad, but their recent form is worrying. They’ll be travelling to the US looking not only to turn around a one-goal deficit but to finally put a dreadful streak to an end.

Philadelphia Union vs Saprissa: Storylines
While the MLS 2021 hasn’t begun yet, and its kick-off date is getting closer, Philadelphia was one of the American teams that had to begin their Concachampions journey still being in preseason.
However, they figured out the way to begin the year strongly, as they have beaten a strong Costa Rican side on the road. Back at home, Curtin’s team has the duty to hold onto their advantage and to avoid any disappointment.
Deportivo Saprissa, on the other hand, are going through hard times, even though they remain at the third place of the domestic championship standings. The Purple Monster hasn’t won in their last eight league games, which is why they are desperate to turn things around.
