The Philadelphia Union (7-5-5), currently in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference having racked up 1.53 points per game thus far travel to the road to take a Real Salt Lake squad that is (10-5-3) with 1.83 points per game. This could be a challenge but while the Union will certainly miss Jack McInerney's presence on the pitch, they can rely on the fact that other players have been finishing and putting the ball in the net in the past couple games.

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

Philadelphia Union bench: Chris Konopka, Chris Albright, Don Anding, Matt Kassel, Roger Torres, Antoine Hoppenot, Aaron Wheeler

Real Salt Lake starting XI: (4-4-2) Josh Saunders; Chris Wingert, Carlos Salcedo, Nat Borchers, Lovel Palmer; Khari Stephenson, Yordany Alverez, Javier Morales, Ned Grabavoy; Joao Plata, Robbie Findley

Real Salt Lake bench: Jeff Attinella, Aaron Maund, Absoulie Mansally, Sebastian Velasquez, Luis Gil, Olmes Garcia, Devon Sandoval
