The Union had a penalty saved by Mexico international Guillermo Ochoa, who denied Jamiro Monteiro, after Kacper Przybylko was fouled by Bruno Valdez.
Philadelphia – looking to end MLS’ title drought in the Champions League, dating back to LA Galaxy’s success in 2000, dominated the second half.
However, Benedetti all but settled the contest in the 79th minute before Martin tapped home America’s second of the night in stoppage time.
