Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).
Columbus stands no more chance to qualify and finds no more reason to give their best on the pitch anymore. Even when they had been trying as hard as they could, the team was no match for most squads in the competition.
They had recorded a win against Atlanta a match-day back. But that could be attributed to the MLS champions taking things lightly, owing to them being in a comfortable position in the table.
This Sunday, on the other side of the pitch we have Philly, who have already gained a qualification, and is placed second in standings. They possess one of the best attacks of the whole MLS lot, with them having scored the second-most number of goals, just four behind New York’s tally of 61.

Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union Prediction
Columbus has just one win from their previous eight fixtures and even had four losses on the trot during this run. In addition, they have managed just a single clean sheet from their prior 14 match-ups. And most importantly, they are already eliminated from further proceedings.
On the other hand, we have possibly the second-best squad in the conference, and who have already been qualified to the playoffs, on the other half of the pitch. Moreover, the last time these two met, Philly had registered a 3-0 victory, and impressively, they have conceded a single goal from the prior five h2h clashes as well.
As such, count on the guests to come out on top this Sunday.
