New York Red Bulls starting XI:
New York Red Bulls bench:
This game is it, folks. The last one of the season for the Union. The culmination of a lengthy run of disappointing, then surprising, then disappointing and other kinds of feelings over results for a year. It's been a fun time, even in the face of what some fans might see as a "typical" Philadelphia sports franchise's season.
Prediction: The Union have done well versus the Red Bulls at home, with PPL Park a fortress against the team from North Jersey. My prediction for this game is a win for Philadelphia, 2-1.
The game can be seen at 1:30 PM EDT on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC). Discuss the game here with fellow Union fans and Brotherly Game staff. Go Union! DOOP!
