The host played the first round of playoffs last season and was at the top of the overall MLS table. They will play after a 1-2 loss at home against Inter Miami last time out in the campaign.

They had a massive 5-0 win at home against the likes of FC Cincinnati in the previous encounter. The visitor also reached the first round of playoffs last season after finishing 7th in the overall league table.
Philadelphia Union vs New York City Head-to-head (h2h)

Philadelphia Union vs New York City Prediction
Since none of their h2h meetings at this venue has featured over three goals in a single game, there is a good chance that the teams will continue that trend in the upcoming clash.
Besides, the teams are in the starting stage of the MLS this term and might want to take things slow. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably come in handy for the goals department in the clash.
Furthermore, the match is sizing to be anyone’s game in full-time. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle.
But NYC FC will come in with a better win record in their h2h history. However, their most recent h2h encounter was won by the Union away from home.
Thus, the double chance favoring Philadelphia Union will probably be the best bet for the punters.
