Richard Wolowicz

The Union need a win. The Montreal Impact are in the midst of an incredible slump. Winning at Saputo Stadium is never easy. Someone hold me.

After a disappointing draw that could have been so much worse, the Philadelphia Union head north to Saputo Stadium, a place where they have never earned a point in two previous attempts, in search of a much-needed three points. In order to reasonably secure a playoff spot, the Union need four points from their next two matches, and a victory over Montreal Impact, a side that is winless in its past six matches, would go a long way in helping the Union. A draw would keep the Union barely alive, and a loss today at Saputo figures to virtually end the season for the Union.
