Philadelphia Union to Win

Last time around at the Subaru Park, the Eastern Conference champions suffered an unlikely defeat to David Beckham’s Inter Miami. They came into that fixture after a 0-0 draw with Columbus Crew. They are back in their home surroundings and have an impressive 0-3 away win under their belts. New York City FC will not be easy targets but the visitors are missing six first-team regulars.

Total Goals Over 2.5

New York City have seen eight goals in their last two competitive outings. On the other hand, Philadelphia Union have been involved in six. All of the aforementioned matches have seen at least three goals, a trend that should continue as the two attack-minded outfits face off with each other.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In their recent outings, both Philadelphia Union and New York City kept clean sheets to the dismay of their rivals. In the match preceding it, they conceded two goals apiece. Philadelphia were defensive juggernauts last time around but New York City’s recent scoring form cannot be downplayed. Given their tendency to find gaps in their rivals backline, the match proposes to be an exciting affair on either side of the pitch.

Philadelphia Union vs New York City Fixture Preview

Philadelphia Union

The Union headed by Jim Curtin impressed all and sundry with their performances in the 2020 MLS campaign. It is a new season now and they cannot rest on their laurels. Philadelphia have shown an uncanny weakness at the back, something that they need to work on before the competition kicks into full gear. They are missing nineteen-year-old Jack de Vries in midfield due to a concussion but have enough in the tank to make up for his absence. Polish forward Kacper Przybylko scored a brace against Atlanta United and remains their best scoring option.

New York City FC

The Boys in Blue rampaged through FC Cincinnati’s defence in an imposing 5-0 win at the Yankee Stadium. They will make the short trip to Philadelphia for their next outing. Ronny Deila would have been in an upbeat mood after such a result but is short on numbers with six players under the medics care. Despite the injury woes, the performance by Jesus Medina and Valentin Castellanos would encourage the Blues faithful to dream big. The duo have four goals amongst them from New York City’s last two outings and are beckoning on forging an impeccable partnership at the tip of the attack.
