Venue: Talen Energy Stadium (Chester).

Philadelphia Union are going to face Vancouver Whitecaps in the 17th round of Major League Soccer. All stats and current form of these two teams are pointing at direction of a narrow contest and low scoring affair.

Home side tied two straight defeats after a four-match unbeatable run. They are sitting on the 8th place in the Eastern Conference, but they are still not too far from the playoff zone as Orlando City are just a point ahead of them. Jim Curtin’s side haven’t been too productive this season although their defending was pretty tight.

Vancouver Whitecaps are enjoying the streak of six games without losing and that one launched them to the 4th spot in the Western Conference. They have been involved in high scoring matches this season as their defence wasn’t at the expected level, but Kei Kamara and the lads managed to compensate their bad defensive work by being clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal.

Philadelphia Union vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Head-to-head

The visitors haven’t suffered a defeat in their last four encounters and they managed to celebrated two victories over their rivals during that period. Their head to head clashes have usually been pretty tight ones.

Philadelphia Union v Vancouver Whitecaps: Prediction

Home side is not in a good momentum and the visitors might take advantage of that to keep up their unbeatable streak. We are not confident of their victory, but Vancouver Whitecaps might be able to snatch a draw from this one.

Since the hosts are playing pretty tight at home ground and their matches haven’t been too efficient this season, we shouldn’t expect to see an efficient clash. This wouldn’t be surprising as their clashes haven’t been that efficient.
