Philadelphia Union vs Colorado Rapids Match Preview
Philadelphia Union will know they cannot afford to be complacent here even though they host the bottom team of the entire MLS standings.
Union are top of the Eastern Conference and even have games in hand of the two clubs immediately below them, which suggests they could be on course for their best ever campaign – they have never got beyond the overall last eight since joining MLS in 2010.
With five home wins out of eight this term, Jim Curtin’s side ought to be confident against Colorado Rapids, who are propping up the other 23 clubs – but it may not be a walk in the park because the visitors to this venue beside the Delaware River are improving.
Colorado have benefited for a change of manager at the start of this month with Conor Casey replacing Anthony Hudson on an interim basis. It took Casey a couple of games to have an effect but they have won their last two, including away to LA Galaxy.
That represented a rare clean sheet against opponents without suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic but even since Casey took over from his English predecessor, the Rapids have continued to concede goals – eight in four matches despite those couple of victories.
There should be plenty of entertainment in this contest and while it may not be easy for the Union, they are expected to have just too much firepower for Colorado.
