Two sides who have their sights set on winning the Eastern Conference outright this year, Philadelphia Union will welcome New York Red Bulls to the Talen Energy Stadium in the early hours of Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a 3-2 win away at play-off contenders Minnesota last weekend, Philadelphia now find themselves holding a one-point buffer at the top of the Eastern Conference. Tasting defeat just once since the 14th of April, it will undoubtedly be the Union’s continued form in the final third most impressing Head Coach Jim Curtin. Despite failing to record a clean sheet in any of their previous six appearances, Sunday’s hosts hold the second best attacking return of any side in either the East or the West. Despite their bright attacking form, there will be some minor concerns over Philadelphia’s recent performances in Pennsylvania. They have now failed to win any of their last three matches on home soil, including a 3-1 hammering at home to Portland last month.

As for the visitors, putting in yet another eye-catching display in their empathic 4-0 win at home to Real Salt Lake last time out, the mood in New York’s camp will be at a season high. Picking up back-to-back victories and winning four of their previous five outings, fans around the Red Bull Arena will also be growing more impressed by their sides’ performances in the final third. Sunday’s visitors have now scored 13 goals on their five-match unbeaten run and have also begun to show some real improvements on the road. Picking up consecutive away victories over Cincinnati and FC Dallas, we’re expecting a lively encounter in Pennsylvania this weekend.
