Bonjour, mes amis! While no one will ever mistake this afternoon's Champions League Final as a warm-up to a meager MLS regular season match, this is certainly a crucial match-up for the Union in the Eastern Conference. The Eastern Conference is currently structured in three tiers: The top four, the middle two, and the bottom four. If the Union want to separate themselves from the Columbus Crew in the middle two and try to join up with the Montreal Impact up in the top, three points tonight on the road, would be absolutely critical toward achieving that guy.

Philadelphia Union starting XI: (4-2-3-1) Zac MacMath; Raymon Gaddis, Jeff Parke, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams; Brian Carroll, Kleberson; Michael Farfan; Sebastien Le Toux, Danny Cruz; Jack McInerney

Philadelphia Union bench: Chris Konopka, Conor Casey, Antoine Hoppenot, Leo Fernandes, Don Anding, Matt Kassel, Keon Daniel

Montreal Impact starting XI: (4-4-2) Troy Perkins; Dennis Iapichino, Matteo Ferrari, Alessandro Nesta, Jeb Brovsky; Felipe Martins, Patrice Bernier, Justin Mapp, Andres Romero; Andrew Wenger, Marco Di Vaio

Montreal Impact bench: Evan Bush, Wandrille Lefèvre, Karl Ouimette, Collen Warner, Siniša Ubiparipović, Blake Smith, Sanna Nyassi

Prediction: The Union will need more than Jack McInerney in order to beat Montreal and catapult themselves into more secure positioning. Unfortunately, the Union are incapable of supplying that. Impact win 2-0.
