Match preview

Philadelphia Union are currently top of the Eastern Conference, but will they stay there come the end of this weekend?

Last time out, Jim Curtin's men beat Charlotte 2-0 with Julián Carranza opening the scoring before Dániel Gazdag pounced on some very slack defending.

This means the Union have won four straight matches since being held to a 1-1 draw by Minnesota Union on the opening weekend.

Philadelphia lifted the Supporters' Shield in 2020 before finishing second in the east and reaching the Conference Finals last season.

Once again, the side from Pennsylvania look like strong contenders.

Columbus Crew meantime were beaten for the first time in 2022 last weekend with Nashville SC leaving Field with a 1-0 victory.

Before this, Caleb Porter's side had accumulated eight points from four games, beating two Canadian clubs, Vancouver and Toronto, both at home.

However, the Crew have actually only won one away game since July, form they'll need to address if they're to remain in a play-off position.

Will the Union be too strong at Subaru Park?
