After a disappointing draw against the Houston Dynamo, the Philadelphia Union (8-5-9) are home once again and try to redeem themselves against a team they have never beaten in their short franchise history, FC Dallas (12-6-6). Oh, and something about some guy named Freddy Adu too. Kickoff at PPL Park is scheduled for 8:06:30 PM ET.
