Philadelphia Union to beat New England and over 2.5 goals 11/8 in Sundays MLS matchup
Market: Philadelphia Union win and over 2.5 goals
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365
Looking to shore up their playoff position in the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia will welcome a struggling New England side to the Talen Energy Stadium on Sunday at midnight.
Starting with the hosts, after booking their spot in the final of this years US Open Cup, Philadelphia are currently enjoying an impressive run and are a leading contender to land a playoff position in the East. After 24 MLS games this year, The Union have won 10, drawn three and lost 11, scoring 34 and conceding 39 in return. With a points tally of 39, Philadelphia currently hold a four-point buffer from slipping out of the Top Six. As for their recent form, the hosts have now won four of their last five matches in all competitions and have found the net 11 times in those four victories.
As for the visitors, New England have drastically started to struggle under former USA goalkeeper Brad Friedel and their poor form has seen them slip out of the playoff positions. After 24 games, New England have won seven, drawn eight and lost nine, scoring 38 and conceding 40 in return. While they may be sat four points adrift of the playoffs, sadly for The Revolution they’re well and truly out of form. New England have failed to win any of their last seven matches in the MLS and have lost five of those outings. More worrying, they have now shipped two or more goals in their last six matches on the bounce.
