Market: Philadelphia Union to score over 1.5 goals
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
With their spot in the play-offs all but confirmed, a high-flying Philadelphia will make the trip to New Jersey on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in yet another worrying display in their 4-2 hammering against Seattle last weekend, the pressure is really starting to mount on Head Coach Chris Armas. Watching his side lose three of thier last four outings, there is no doubt that fans around the Red Bull Arena will be most concerned by their sides continued defensive issues. Now managing to bag just a pair of clean sheets since the start of August, New York have also shipped eight goals in their previous three defeats. Also recording just a single victory in New Jersey in their last four attempts, Sunday night could prove to be another long 90 minutes for Armas’ men.
As for the visitors, picking up a very eye-catching 1-1 draw away at runaway Western leaders Los Angeles last weekend, Philadelphia appear to have once again found their form. Climbing back up to second in the Eastern Conference and dreaming of a late title charge, Jim Curtin’s men have won four of their last six appearances and have tasted defeat just once since the end of July. One man who has really spearhead Philadelphia’s recent resurge has been the red-hot Kacper Przybylko. Curtin’s leading man has now found the net in each of his last three MLS outings and the 26-year-old should be confident of extending that run on Sunday.
