Union vs. Minnesota United: Preview, projected lineups, and how to watch

The Union are a win away from the playoffs.

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Minnesota United FC Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Union can secure a playoff position with a win tonight, when they’ll host Minnesota United.

Both teams come into this one in good form, each having taken seven points over their last three games. But while that run has the Union a win away from a playoff berth, Minnesota United is virtually out of contention. A big reason why is because of their road record: 1-12-2, the worst in MLS. They haven’t won away from home since March, when they won, 2-1, over Eastern Conference-worst Orlando City.

Projected lineups

Philadelphia Union: Andre Blake; Keegan Rosenberry, Jack Elliott, Auston Trusty, Raymon Gaddis; Alejandro Bedoya, Haris Medunjanin; CJ Sapong, Borek Dockal, Fafa Picault; Cory Burke

Minnesota United: Bobby Shuttleworth; Jerome Thiesson, Michael Boxall, Brent Kallman, Francisco Calvo; Maximiano, Fernando Bob; Miguel Ibarra, Darwin Quintero, Rasmus Schuller; Angelo Rodriguez
