Philadelphia Union vs DC United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium.
The visit to Talen Energy Stadium and the clash with Philadelphia Union will be a massive opportunity for DC United to step up and take a breakthrough win on the road to climb up the ladder in the Eastern Conference standings.
The hosts are probably the team with the weakest form in the entire competition at the moment.
Jim Curtin’s side suffered three straight defeats to fall down to the very foot of the standings on the East.
Moreover, Zolos netted only a single goal along the way.
DC United have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season. Ben Olsen also had huge struggles with his team’s attacking line which failed to score a single goal in back-to-back defeats to Orlando City and Toronto in last two matches on the road.
Lucas Acosta and Patricky Nyarko did improve Olsen’s mood as they created a comeback to help the team clinch a three-pointer against Atlanta United on Wednesday evening at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.
Philadelphia Union vs DC United: Head to head
The teams are all levelled at ten wins each ahead of their 25th H2H encounter.
This will be their third meeting of the season. The second has been particularly interesting as it saw a demolishing 0-4 win for Philadelphia who took the best advantage of having an extra-man on the pitch.
Philadelphia Union vs DC United: Prediction
We expect to see a huge battle at the centre of the court since the match has a great significance for both teams.
Neither Phila nor DC can be proud of their latest attacking displays which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT by far the best of the betting options.
