Philadelphia Union shown better results in MLS matches so far, recording 30 points in 20 games with 34-28 goal difference. The Union are currently second in the East. Philadelphia started their path in the Open Cup with round 32 clash against Harrisburg City Islanders, 3-2, and then knocked out another New York team, the Red Bills, 2-1. Philadelphia Union played nine matches on the road in 2016, taking one win, three draws and five defeats.
Most of the teams in the US show their best football in front of home crowd. Philadelphia played a head-to-head against New England at home, beating the Revolution 3-0. However, the Union are struggling on the road just like many other MLS teams. We shouldn’t expect many goals in the match that promises to be quite intense as it’s a late stage and both teams are three wins away from the trophy.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
