Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls Match Preview

Philadelphia Union have entered the MLS play-offs in their worst run of form since the start of the season – and that looks to make them vulnerable against New York Red Bulls.

Starting with a 2-0 defeat away to Sunday’s opponents last month, the Union ended the regular campaign with three losses out of four and most recently they went down 2-1 at home to the Red Bulls’ rivals from the Big Apple, New York City.

Jim Curtin’s side still finished seven points and three places ahead of the Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference standings, which means they have home advantage for this one-off match in the new play-off format – the winner meets Atlanta United or New England Revolution.

New York Red Bulls have also been hit and miss of late, but as well as a 2-0 win away to Portland within their last four games they also have that victory by the same scoreline in Philadelphia to boost their confidence with Tom Barlow and Daniel Royer scoring the goals.

Royer, the Austrian winger, has had a particularly good season for Chris Armas’ side with 11 goals and he may well be the danger man on this visit to Chester, Pennsylvania.

On current form, the Red Bulls look the better value to qualify here, but we would not be surprised if extra time or penalties were required to determine who advances with so much at stake potentially creating a cagey encounter.
