The Philly Soccer Page " The path to the playoffs
After Saturday’s action, four points are all that separate the top six teams in the Eastern Conference.
The Regular season is winding down and as the Union look forward to a possible playoff berth we here at UnionDues are already beginning to look back over the Union’s Sophomore season.
It took an incredible rally to win that game 3-2, and the Union scored multiple goals in two of their next three, as well (two ties and a win). The attacking lineup was here to stay.
Two weeks ago, the Union might have been considered dead on the Eastern Conference table.
New York is sitting once again in the playoff zone today at the 10th and final spot. With the Portland Timbers, DC United and even Chivas USA sitting behind them, the Red Bulls have to continue to take care of business. There are four big matches left for the Red Bulls which see them go to Toronto and Kansas City, while hosting the Galaxy and rivals Philadelphia. Look for that final game against the Union to be a huge playoff battle that could determine whether or not one of those two gets into the playoffs at all this season.
Sébastien Le Toux is on fire.
This weekend marked a momentous occasion as our Philadelphia Union Academy launched our first-ever fall season with a weekend full of games against MLS competition. We were fortunate enough to host the Chicago Fire, NY Red Bulls, and DC United U-16 academy teams, as well as the Red Bulls U-18 team, here in Philadelphia.
You want parity? Take a look at the Eastern Conference standings. Amazingly, with only a handful of games left in the MLS regular season, only four points separate the top six teams in the table. Four points.
