The Philadelphia Union (7-12-2) currently sit in ninth place in the Eastern Conference and are in need of a miracle if they want a playoff spot. The good news for the Union is they are facing a team directly competing for that fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The bad news for the Philadelphia Union is they are on the road, and they have been awful all season on the road. The Union have scored a Conference low six goals on the road all season long, and they will likely need road goals if they hope to earn three points against an offensively potent D.C. United squad at RFK.
Prediction: Two things are working against the Union tonight. They are on the road, and they are facing a superior team. If they can steal a point or three, that would be fantastic, but I just don't see it in the cards tonight. D.C. United win 3-1.
