They suffered a stunning 3-1 defeat in Costa Rica in the opening leg, but the away goal Atlanta United secured gives them a lifeline in the Concacaf Champions League Round of 16 second leg. A 2-0 victory would send the Five Stripes through to the quarterfinals, where they’d see either Alianza or Monterrey, who played to a 0-0 first-leg draw in San Salvador.
