Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire
Philadelphia Union to win and both teams to score NO- 2/1!
It’s the Eastern Conference leaders up against Major League Soccer’s form side in Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia Union had won five successive matches before slumping to a 3-1 defeat at Cincinnati last weekend.
Paxten Aaronson’s late deflected goal the only highlight of a disappointing night in Ohio.
Back at home, Jim Curtin’s men have won four games on the spin, most recently putting six without reply past Houston Dynamo.
So, will the Union, at least, maintain their three-point cushion at the top?
Chicago meantime were bottom of the east not so long ago, but have caught fire during the summer.
They beat Charlotte 3-2 at Bank of America Stadium last weekend with Kacper Przybyłko bagging a brace with Federico Navarro also on target.
This means the Fire have become just the second team to score more than once in Queen City, after Montréal in May.
Also, Chicago have now won back-to-back away MLS games for the first time in almost nine years.
Overall, Ezra Hendrickson’s side have accumulated 13 points from their last five outings, so sit seventh in the east.
Will the Chicago revival continue, or will Subaru Park prove to be a bridge too far?
