2018/19 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).
Both New England and Philadelphia struggled for consistency off late, the hosts particularly disappointing with their winless streak stretched to five games last week (2 draws, 3 losses).
New England played a thriller at Orlando City last week, but the 3-3 ft score-line once again exposed their defensive woes and inability to hold on to a lead. They were leading 2-0 after 18 minutes from kick-off.
Philadelphia on the other hand were thrashed 0-3 by Portland Timbers in their latest MLS fixture. The team now lost 6 of their last 9, the remaining 3 are wins, but this only resulted in them dropping down the league table.
The Union have similar problem like their hosts, after conceding 16 goals in their last 6 games. Away from home, the defensive record is even worse with 3 or more goals conceded in 4 of the last 5.
