Kacper’s equalizer

Doneil Henry’s goal

Starting Lineups

Cory Burke and Ilsinho didn’t make the trip for “personal reasons,” Matthew Freese makes his first career start in goal in place of the injured Andre Blake and Ray Gaddis moves to left back and Olivier Mbaizo starts at right back. Kacper Przybylko also makes his first Union start. A little unexpected. We’ll see how that goes.

Philadelphia Union: Matthew Freese, Ray Gaddis, Auston Trusty, Jack Elliott, Olivier Mbaizo, Haris Medunjanin, Alejandro Bedoya, Brenden Aaronson, Jamiro Monteiro, David Accam, Kacper Przybylko

Projected Lineups
