Well, this is certainly a very big match for the Philadelphia Union. Not only are the Union looking to secure points from Red Bull Arena for the first time in their franchise history (0-5-0), but the Union are facing a second place team who has thrived at home this season. It will certainly not be an easy task, but getting a historic first win at Red Bull Arena in such an important match standings wise would present Union fans with a euphoric moment not soon forgotten.
