- This will be Philadelphia's first trip to Quebec. The Union defeated the Impact at PPL Park last month with a stoppage-time goal from Carlos Valdes.
- Montreal’s Davy Arnaud and Felipe Martins are number one and three respectively for fouls suffered in MLS, with 62 and 48.
- Philadelphia won for the third time with a goal in the 90th minute or later since John Hackworth took over as team manager when Jack McInerney’s header gave the union a 2-1 win Sunday against New England.
- With 61, Philadelphia is tied with Chivas USA for the fewest shots on target in the league.
- Felipe set up all three Impact goals in the New York victory, his first three-assist game in MLS, giving him eight for the season, good enough for the sixth-highest total in MLS.
