As for the visitors, after only finishing eighth last year, Philadelphia have once again struggled to adapt to life in the MLS.

With a points tally of eight, The Union now sit ninth in the table and are just three points above bottom place D.C United, more worrying for Philadephia is the fact both teams below them have a game advantage. As for their recent form, they have now managed to win just one of their last seven MLS outings, drawing two and losing four.
