Philadelphia Union Scouting Report
The Philadelphia Union (10-8-9, 39 pts.) enter the week fourth in the Eastern Conference. They are 1-2-2 in their last five games with their last win coming at home against D.C. United on Aug. 10, 2-0. Leading the way offensively are youngster Jack McInerney and veteran Conor Casey with 10 and nine goals, respectively. Meanwhile, Sebastien Le Toux has been the primary supplier of assists with a team-high 12. Amobi Okugo, a regular on the back line for the Union, will miss the match while serving a two-game suspension due to yellow card accumulation and a red card he received in Philadelphia’s 5-1 loss against the New England Revolution on Aug. 25.
