A near-brawl highlighted the end of Deportivo Saprissa’s 1-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union on Wednesday night.
Kacper Przybylko’s 34th-minute tally off an Olivier Mbaizo cross was the night’s only goal, as the Major League Soccer club earned a road victory at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa.
But the most memorable events of the night occurred in added time, after a Ricardo Blanco slide tackle. Watch the drama here:

The return match in the CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 is Wednesday in Philadelphia.
