CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Philadelphia vs América: times, TV and how to watch online

Philadelphia Union and Club América meet at Subaru Park in the CONCACAF Champions League semi-final second leg fixture on Wednesday.

Both teams went head-to-head last month at Estadio Azteca in the first leg fixture, which ended with a 2-0 win for the Liga MX side thanks to goals in either half by Richard Sánchez and Emanuel Aguilera.

Club América fans are everywhere and they are supporting the team as they travel from their hotel to the stadium for today's match.

LIGA MX

Azteca stadium will be open at half capacity for ‘El Clásico Nacional’

The public health department has given the green light to the Liga MX to open the Estadio Azteca at half capacity for the ‘El Clásico Nacional’ between Club América and Chivas on 25 September. This means that around 40 thousand fans will be allowed inside the venue. The Azteca's official capacity is 87,523, though it's record ever attendance was 119,853 for a Mexico - Brazil match in 1968.

Club América, the most successful club in the competition, will face Philadephia Union, who have struggled lately, with only one victory from their four games since the first leg.

Jim Curtin’s side suffered their second consecutive defeat in their last MLS match, after going down 0-1 to New England, although the loss could be attributed to the absence of their key players on international duty.

Hello and welcome to AS English's live coverage of the CONCACAF semi finals match between Philidelphia Union and América at Subaru Park, Pennsylvania. Kick-off is at 9:00 PM (ET).
