DC United vs Philadelphia Union
USA Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 05 August 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington, DC).
It’s safe to say that this week’s most interesting game in the East will be played in nation’s capital, at Audi Field, where DC United hosts conference leaders, Philadelphia Union.
DC United are struggling at the moment with only one win in last five games – against lowly Cincinnati. With only ten games left in the regular season, Ben Olsen’s men need to step up after the mediocre road trip, and make it count at home where they have W/D/L record of 5-5-2 and are on a 7-game unbeaten streak.
Philadelphia are in serious danger of loosing top spot in the East after their recent performances on the road. Just one win and three losses in last four away games, in which they have conceded massive 13 goals should concern them big time.
DC United vs Philadelphia Union: Head to Head
These teams went against each other 30 times so far and only four of them did not produce a winner.
They met in June, in US Open, and DC won that game 2-1 after ET.
There are no over/under tendencies to speak of, and result can go either way as well.
DC United vs Philadelphia Union: Prediction
DC United are three points behind Union in the standings, and they would dethrone them with a win on Monday, although Atlanta, sitting at 2nd, would be first in line to embrace the leading position in the East if they win their game against LA Galaxy.
Black-and-Red and scoring 1.57 goals per game at home and allowing 1.17. Phila, on the other hand, are bagging 1.25 and conceding almost two.
It’s hard to back Union in this game, especially after 4-0 losses against RSL and Montreal Impact. DC United are a different team at Audi Field, and they should be closer to win. I’m going with DNB option though, because hosts have drew a lot games recently.
DC to score over 1.5 looks like an attractive bet as well considering Union’s latest mishaps.
