Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365

With the chance to climb to the top of the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia will welcome FC Cincinnati to the Talen Energy Stadium on Thursday.

Starting with the hosts, while Philadelphia would have been disappointed to have only picked up a point against Vancouver last time out, Jim Curtin’s side are enjoying a bright start to the new MLS campaign. With the chance to claim top spot in the Eastern Conference, a huge part of The Union’s start to the year has been their very impressive record at the Talen Energy Stadium. Winning their last three home matches on the bounce, Philadelphia have also now gone over 300 minutes without conceding a goal in Pennsylvania. Led by leading goalscorer David Accam who has now bagged three goals in his last four MLS appearances, Curtin’s side should be confident of extending their bright start to the season.

As for the visitors, coming off the back of a 1-0 loss away at New York Red Bulls last weekend, FC Cincinnati have started to struggle after a bright start. Freefalling down to 11th in the East and failing to win any of their last five outings, Alan Koch’s side have also now lost their last three MLS matchups on the bounce. A huge part of FCC’s struggles in their debut campaign in America’s top-tier has been their form in the final third. Cincinnati have failed to score in any of their previous three defeats and have not scored an away goal since the 24th of March. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing Philadelphia to come away with the victory on Thursday.
