New England Revolution vs Philadelphia Union
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 June 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).
Philadelphia sits atop the Eastern Conference, even with a fewer game played in their kitty. They have by far been the best team in this region and boasts of the most goals scored yet. As of now, they are on a two-match winning run and will be looking to make it three out of three.
Their last fixture was against the Red Bulls, which saw them making a sensational comeback, after going down two goals even before the first half was over.
The Bulls scored two goals for no return and got to the dressing room with a 0-2 scoreline at half time. But the hosts rallied in the latter 45 minutes, and recorded three goals in a row, to take the three points.
If not for Cincinnati, New England would have been the worst of the lot in the East. They have averaged just about a point per match and has scored goals in the same snail’s pace as well.
Their last match-up saw them losing against Orlando, after holding on till the end of regulation time, in their US Open Cup fixture. In the extra time, hosts Orlando fired in two early goals in the space of five minutes to put the visitors under massive pressure. The latter was able to return a goal, but it was too late and too little.
