Separated only by three points in the Eastern Conference standings, the Philadelphia Union look to move into a tie for eight place with New England.New England will look to solve their road woes when they visit PPL Park on Sunday night. The Revolution have amassed 7 loses in 10 away matches this season with only a single win in those games.
The team is also winless in their last 3 contests including a boring goalless draw in their last match when they played Sporting KC and are desperately looking to gain some points to get back into the playoff picture.
The team's roster is healthy but will be missing the services of forward Jerry Bengsten who is competing at the Olympics with Honduras.
The Revs are paying 3.20 to pull off the win and move to within 6 points of Chicago for that final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
The draw is also available at the same price and could be the safe option with a decent return in this game.
The home side have played rather well as of late and were on a three-game win streak until New York beat them 2-0 last weekend.
The home record of 4-4-1 (W-L-T) definitely leaves much to be desired but will be buoyed by the fact that since the Union joined MLS a couple of years ago, have not lost to the Revs in 4 all-time meetings (2 wins and 2 draws).
Philadelphia will look to both Lionard Pajoy and Gabriel Gomez to beat Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis as both players have accounted for 40% of the team’s 25 goals.
The Union are offered right now at Ladbrokes.com at a price of 2.00 to send the Revs packing back to New England with no points.
