After a very impressive win on the road at Seattle, the Philadelphia Union (11-7-14) will play their last home game of the season against the almost always struggling Toronto FC (6-13-13). With a win or a draw today, the Union would clinch a playoff spot. Should the Union lose, then a New York Red Bulls loss to Sporting Kansas City would also clinch a playoff spot for the Union. Kickoff at PPL Park is scheduled for 4:08:00 PM ET.
