  • Chivas USA has never beaten Philly. The Union have won both games at PPL Park and posted 1-1 draws in their two visits to take on the Goats in the Home Depot Center.
  • Chivas has the most perplexing record in MLS this year. The Goats have won all three road matches and lost all three home games in 2012.
  • Philly won for the first time in 2012 against the Columbus Crew last week. Before that the Union had posted three losses and one draw to start the season.
  • Juan Pablo Angel could see his first action of the season. The Colombian striker has missed the opening six games due to concussion symptoms.
  • Philly is riding a 244 minute shutout streak despite missing captain Danny Califf for three games this year.
