After spending three months without sports, fans are now dealing with an onslaught of games. The Philadelphia Union will play their third game in nine days tonight, which means the U are halfway through the first phase of games that have been announced.
The boys in blue come into the match against D.C. United, sitting in third place in the East. They are also coming off a 1-0 win against the New York Red Bulls. In that game Kacper Przybylko got the goal after a well-timed cross from Ray Gaddis. Przybylko is the only Union player to have multiple goals this season in games counting toward the regular season.
DC United comes into Chester with a bunch of issues. The team currently is in 12th pace in the conference standings, with a record of 1-3-3. United is also dealing with a lot of injuries. In the midfield, Paul Arriola, Edison Flores and Lancaster, Pa. native Russell Canouse will be out. Defender Chris Odoi-Atsem is also unavailable for selection.
The lone injury for the Union is reserve center back Aurelien Collin, who is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.
