It has been twelve days since the Philadelphia Union last played their I-95 rival New York Red Bulls. In that time the Union have gone 1-1, losing their most recent match in Columbus. As for New York, they have gone 0-1-1 and have even dismissed their head coach.
The Red Bulls come into tonight’s match needing a quality win. The Union often struggle inside the New Jersey stadium, out of 12 matches played there during the regular season the boys in blue have only won once. However, the current form for the Red Bulls is dreadful with only scoring twice over their past 6 games. The stretch of bad games not only claimed Chris Armas’ job but also his assistant coach C.J. Brown.
As for the U, after failing to finish on multiple occasions in Columbus, the Philadelphia Union are looking to get back to their winning ways. IF they do get the win, it will be without defenders Aurelien Collin and Kai Wagner, who are out with leg injuries. There are two other players to keep a close eye on and that is midfielders Jose Martinez and Jamiro Monteiro, if either of them gets a yellow card tonight they will miss the game against New England next Saturday.
