Game Thread: Philadelphia Union 1 New England Revolution 1 full time

The Union look to keep rolling to start the second half of the season against Bruce Arena’s New England Revolution

MLS: Philadelphia Union at New England Revolution Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports


90’ +2 That looked like a game winner from Ilsinho there off the long cross from Fafa but his shot doesn’t have enough power on it and ends up an easy save.

Update: They’re saying on the broadcast that the goal is Kacper’s. I guess the ball didn’t cross the line before Kacper got his foot to it.

85’ The Union final get the breakthrough on an own goal set up by Fafa Picault’s pace running into the box and crossing it in front of goal. The pass was headed to Kacper and hit off Andrew Farrell and in.

78’ Freese with a big save in traffic to deny Zahibo

73’ That was so close to Ray Gaddis scoring his first career goal. So close.

72’ Caicedo beats Elliott 1v1 and gets himself a shot in the box but it misses the mark. Union really lucky to not be down 2-0.

65’ Wagner goes into the book. That’s the sixth card of the night, fourth for the Union.

62’ Fafa Picault into the game for Santos. Not the best night for Santos.

48’ Ilsinho doing what he does best down beating his man on the right flank to set up a scoring chance for Wagner whose header misses wide

46’ Ilsinho into the game for Aaronson

Halftime - Time for the Union to regroup after a disjointed first half full of a lot of whistles and far too many chances for the Revs. Santos needs to be much more clinical in front of goal. There were a total of 20 fouls called in the first half, 12 of those against the Union.

45’ Haris Medunjanin into the book. That’s three yellows to the Union, one to the Revs in the first half.

31’ Brandon Bye makes it 1-0 to the Revs off a corner kick from Carles Gil. Absolutely criminal marking there by the Union.

30’ Agudelo looked like he had the game’s first goal after getting on the end of a ball that Teal Bunbury did well to dummy. Fortunately for the Union Agudelo’s shot misses the target.

28’ Auston Trusty goes into the book.

27’ Santos misfires on a great opportunity in front of goal set up by a clever little pass from Monteiro to Wagner making an overlapping run down the left flank and a cross into the box from Wagner.

22’ Brenden Aaronson bringing the attack to life. Made a couple nice passes and was just taken down after a give and go. Monteiro’s free kick makes its way through on the ground to Knighton who makes the routine save.

16’ Kacper records the first shot for the Union in the game after doing well to bring down a long ball from Auston Trusty and fire off a shot that Brad Knighton is able to knock out for a corner.

11’ Brenden Aaronson goes into the book for a foul

1’ Game is underway
