Having lost last week to the Chicago Fire, the Philadelphia Union will seek to make amends against last place D.C. United on a bit of a hot streak at the moment with the help of recent additions. But it is important to note that the Union have had a full week of rest and United used a full strength squad 72 hours ago and are playing a B side tonight. Given that and this match is at PPL Park, it would be a grand disappointment if the Union do not walk away from this match with three points.
