Match preview

It’s bottom vs top in the Eastern Conference; surely this’ll produce only one outcome?

Well, Philadelphia Union kick off a whopping 26 points above their hosts.

In fact, if D.C. won all of their remaining games, and Philly lost all of theres, the capital club would finish just a point above their visitors, although both halves of the equation seem equally as unlikely.

D.C. United were last in action on Tuesday night, beaten 1-0 by run-away league-leaders LAFC at Banc of California Stadium.

Of course, a defeat is never a positive result but, given LA’s form, and the fact Steve Birnbaum was sent off in the second half, there were plenty of positives for Wayne Rooney to take.

What the Black-and-Red need now though is points; they’ve won just two of their last 16 matches, so kick off 11 points below the play-off line.

If it wasn’t for LAFC’s relentless pace at the top of the west, Philadelphia Union would be seriously in Supporters’ Shield contention.

Although, Jim Curtin’s men were actually beaten 1-0 on Wednesday night, leaving Dallas empty handed.

That’s now back-to-back road defeats for the Union who, simultaneously, have won five on the bounce at home.

Despite this, Philadelphia remain five points clear at the top of the east, hoping to end up there for the second time in three years.

There will surely only be one winner at Audi Field, right?
