MLS: Colorado Rapids at Philadelphia Union Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Union found themselves tied at the end of the 90 minutes on Wednesday night with arguably the worst team in Major League Soccer so far this season.

Jim Curtin Rolled out a familiar formation Wednesday evening, by bringing in wings to play on the outside of the formation. Kacper Przybylko was the loan striker at the top of the foundation and he had another tough night trying to sneak a ball into the back of the net.

On the wings were Sergio Santos and Ilsinho starting the night. Santos was able to score the opening goal for the night and was later substituted after half time for Fafa Picault.

Already up one goal, Curtin changed the formation to try and take advantage of the opportunity to score more goals against the Rapids. Curtin Substituted Ilsinho for Marco Fabian. Fabian is currently coming back from an ankle injury and found him self on the bench to start the evening. During this substitution Fabian came in to tell the players to switch to a 4 - 4 - 2 with Picault and Przybylko both playing forward rolls up top of the formation.

The Union were able to keep good pressure on the Rapids for most of the night especially when Marco came in. Marco was able to send good balls a crossed the field to switch up attacks and looks to be good to start hopefully next game.

The defense had a break down in the 72nd minute, when midfielder Jonathan Lewis was able to find space on the left side of Andre Blake and connect on a cross from opponent Andre Shinyashiki to tie the game. This was a break down from the midfield it looks like, not tracking back to help the back line defend.

The Union were unable to score a go ahead goal for the rest of the 18 minutes of the game, even when Curtin substituted Brenden Aaronson for Kai Wagner.

The Union took only two points from a 3 game home stand, against 3 west coast teams in the past 2 weeks. Rate the Individual performances of the players and the head coach, tell us how you feel about the Unions current form and performance in the comments below.
