Meet The Opposition: Once A Metro
The Philadelphia Union have struggled against the top teams in the Eastern Conference this year, and would be absolutely ecstatic if they can muster taking three points at home from the New York Red Bulls. The Union are currently in 5th place in the Eastern Conference, and a win would aid in giving them some separation between the New England Revolution and the Columbus Crew.
Philadelphia Union starting XI: (4-1-3-2) Zac MacMath; Raymon Gaddis, Jeff Parke, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams; Brian Carroll; Danny Cruz, Keon Daniel, Sebastien Le Toux; Conor Casey, Jack McInerney
Philadelphia Union bench: Chris Konopka, Matt Kassel, Michael Farfan, Leo Fernandes, Roger Torres, Antoine Hoppenot, Aaron Wheeler
New York Red Bulls starting XI: (4-4-2) Luis Robles; Roy Miller, Heath Pearce, Markus Holgersson, Brandon Barklage; Jonny Steele, Dax McCarty, Eric Alexander, Lloyd Sam; Thierry Henry, Peguy Luyindula
New York Red Bulls bench: Ryan Meara, Koskuke Kimura, Connor Lade, Michael Bustamante, Ruben Bover, Andre Akpan, Fabian Espindola
Prediction: The Union have struggled all season against superior teams and the Red Bulls fit that description. New York Red Bulls win 2-1.
