The Philadelphia Union have never won four previous trips to Atlanta United, but they stunned the Five Stripes 3-0 on Tuesday when they took the driver’s seat on their first appearance in the Concacaf Champions League semifinals . Union keeper Andre Blake scored six saves in the first half to keep Atlanta United at bay. Kacper Przybylko gave Philadelphia the lead in the 57th minute and hit on the doorstep of Atlanta United’s goal from a corner kick. A one-goal deficit would have been overcome, but Atlanta United have dug a huge hole and conceded two goals on runaways, the first by Przybylko and the second by Anthony Fontana set up by Przybylko. The 3-0 loss was the worst loss Atlanta United has ever suffered in any home competition.
