ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The Philadelphia Union will have its hands full in the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) since they will be facing two-time CCL champion Club America.
The Union who is the underdog in the CCL semifinal series is extra motivated to pull an upset against Club America since they are the remaining Major League Soccer team in the CCL.
The two professional soccer clubs will begin their semis faceoff in mid-August and mid-September.
Aside from being the last remaining MLS team, the Union is also inspired to play it their all since no MLS club has won the tournament in its existing format.
The Union reached the semis after beating Atlanta United 4-1 on Tuesday at Subaru Park.
Club America for its part reached the semis after beating MLS team Portland Timbers 4-2 on Wednesday.
Despite being the favorites in their semifinal duel against the Union, Club America remains to focus on their mission to beat the MLS club and bring home another CCL crown.
