Competition: MLS

Market: Philadelphia Union win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Smelling what is a golden chance to extend on their recent purple patch, Philadelphia Union will make the trip to Cincinnati in the early hours of Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another toothless display last weekend, Cincinnati find themselves enduring what has quickly become an MLS nightmare. Showing no signs of improving under interim boss Tyrone Marshall, the Orange and Blue are once again rooted rock-bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 defeat against New York Red Bulls on home soil, they are now in the midst of a five-match losing run. With it looking like their much-needed victory against Toronto last month was just a minor boost, it’s worth highlighting that Cincinnati have recorded just a single MLS win since the end of June. Knowing that they face a stern test at the TQL Stadium this weekend, Marshall’s side have also managed to land just a single home victory so far this season.

As for the visitors, while Cincinnati might find themselves enduring a real MLS nightmare, Philadelphia are enjoying an eye-catching run of form. Knowing that they hold a golden chance to lay down another marker on Sunday, the Union were last seen landing a thumping 3-0 win against Columbus Crew on home soil. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high and appearing to cruise their way towards another Final Series spot, Jim Curtin’s side have collected 10 points from their last four MLS contests. Despite showing some recent issues on the road, Philadelphia will also be boosted by their most recent meeting against this weekend’s hosts. Landing a 3-0 victory the last time they faced off against Cincinnati, a similar away win appears at attractive odds here.
