Venue: Talen Energy Stadium.

Philadelphia Union will host New England in a very important fixture of the Matchday No 18 this Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium.

There is only a single point separating the two sides just outside the playoffs spots on the East at the moment and the victory over the direct rival for the sixth position might well prove out to be crucial at the end of the season.

Philadelphia Union

Jim Curtin’s men showed a nice display in mid-week’s US Open Cup affair at Red Bull Arena where they lost to New York Red Bulls only after penalties.

Zolos thus continued their strong defensive performances as they have been one of the toughest teams to break down over the last couple of weeks.

Phila have been particularly inspired on the home pitch where they notched five wins in last six matches.

New England

The Revolution were more successful in the US Open Cup action as they went past DC United 2-1 on the home pitch to book the quarterfinal of the competition.

Jay Heaps, however, does not have much to hope for ahead of the visit to Talen Energy Stadium since New England have a poor record away from Gillette Stadium where they lost six and drew three of their nine matches so far in the season.

Philadelphia Union vs New England: Head to head

Phila’s fans will certainly remember the dominant display their team showed in the 0-4 thumping of New England when the two teams played each other last time (August last year at Gillette Stadium).

Zolos have been dominant on the home pitch where they claimed six wins and drew two times in eight H2H encounters with New England at Talen Energy Stadium.
