Philadelphia Union vs New York City FC
USA – Major League Soccer Playoff
Date: Monday, 31 October 2022
Kick-off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Subaru Park

Monday welcomes the buzz of the all-important MLS Semi-finals featuring Philadelphia Union and New York City FC at Subaru Park.

The first spot of the Eastern Conference table was claimed by Philadelphia Union by recording the best performance in the league. Having only conceded five defeats this season, it must be mentioned that they deserved the place.

Undoubtedly, their main strength in this exceptional run were an excellent offensive and defensive line which had an impressive harmony throughout the season.

There will be much expectation on the league’s second best scorer Gazdag. But it is not right to expect goals only from him on such a stage.

Going on, they have won both their games in this season against New York City FC, scoring a total of 4 goals. For all these reasons, their spirits will be higher for sure.

But Philadelphia won’t be able to pull off an easy win like they had in the league fixtures earlier. The main reason is the opponents who are currently in a brilliant form.

New York City FC reached the semi-finals by defeating their opponents in the playoff fixtures scoring huge numbers of goals. They scored 8 goals in the last three games and conceded just 2 in the same stretch.

By the looks of things, expect a highly-competitive affair on Monday when these two teams lock horns.

Philadelphia Union vs New York City FC Prediction

The hosts have brought out an ultimate form in all the games played at this stadium throughout the competition. In fact, they are yet to concede a defeat here this year.

But apart from the wins in the last two games, New York City FC have generally offered weaker performances on the road lately. They definitely possess some spirits, but to face Philadelphia who has been in a confident journey, it might not be enough.
