Columbus Crew to Win

Both sides have had a short preseason and are involved in the CONCACAF Champions League. Interestingly, there fixtures have read similar scorelines in 1-0 and 4-0 victories. Despite the similarities, the Crew should take home the points and continue their three-match winning run over their rivals.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Caleb Porter has forged his side into home turf bullies. Columbus are unbeaten in their eight competitive fixtures at the Historic Crew Stadium. During this run, they have plundered 15 goals, while only shipping in three. On the other hand, Philadelphia average 3.3 goals in their last three away trips. The respective defences on the show need time to stake their names, and there should be goals on view.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The Crew likes to score freely at home and rarely give their rivals any option to score against them. Four of their last five competitive games at home have seen them manage clean sheets. However, they will be taking on the challenge of last year’s best offensive unit in the Eastern Conference. Both sides like to play attacking football and should provide plenty of action for the scorers.

Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union Fixture Preview

Columbus Crew

After finishing in third last season, Columbus managed to take home the MLS title via the play-off route. They will be looking to better themselves and claim the elusive Eastern Conference title. To get them off to a bright start, they will have their hopes pinned on Gyasi Zardes continuing his rich vein of form. Zardes already has two goals from his sole CONCACAF Champions League outing and is showing signs of hitting the ground running.

Philadelphia Union

Jim Curtin guided the Union to their first ever top position in the Eastern Conference last year. However, that was the extent to their luck as they crashed out in the first round of the MLS Cup. They start the 2021 campaign on the road, which is always tricky for teams given the distances involved. Philadelphia have shown their ability to manage away games and will be optimistic ahead of the tie. The player to look out for in Philadelphia colours will be Anthony Fontana. The young Delaware native already has two goal contributions in the CONCACAF Champions League.
