Meet The Opposition: The Bent Musket

The Philadelphia Union, in the history of their franchise, have never lost against the New England Revolution. And after a strong offensive showing against D.C. United last Sunday, the Union will look to once again take points away from the Revs on the road at Gillette Stadium. In the first meeting of the season, the Union capitalized off a bevy of Revolution miscues and picked up a 1-0 win in the rain and snow with a second half goal from Jack McInerney.

Philadelphia Union starting XI: (4-4-2) Zac MacMath; Raymon Gaddis, Jeff Parke, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams; Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan, Keon Daniel, Danny Cruz; Jack McInerney, Conor Casey

Philadelphia Union bench: Chris Konopka, Michael Lahoud, Roger Torres, Kleberson, Antoine Hoppenot, Sebastien Le Toux, Gabriel Farfan
