MLS Preview: Philadelphia Union - New York Red Bulls

The home side has won this fixture every time, but an undermanned defense and sputtering offense for Philly might test that statistic.

Philadelphia Union (4-4-2): Harrison; Williams, Califf, Valdes, Gaddis; Daniel, Carroll, Gomez, Adu; Pajoy, Herdling.


OUT: MF Roger Torres (L knee surgery recovery); FW Krystian Witkowski (concussion); GK Zac MacMath (concussion symptoms)

DOUBTFUL: DF Chris Albright (L big toe sprain)

QUESTIONABLE: DF Danny Califf (L hamstring strain)

PROBABLE: DF Gabriel Farfan (L hamstring strain)
New York Red Bulls (4-4-2): Meara; Barklage, Holgersson, Ruthven, Lade; Ballouchy, McCarty, Lindpere, Solli; Richards, Cooper.


OUT: FW Jose Angulo (R knee sprain); FW Thierry Henry (R hamstring strain); DF Stephen Keel (back strain); DF Wilman Conde (L groin strain); MF Teemu Tainio (R knee sprain)
  • In the four all-time meetings, the home side has won every time. The last encounter, in October 2011, sealed a playoff appearance for New York.
  • The Union have seven points from eight games, second worst in the East and well behind New York, 19 points from 10 games and second best in the East.
  • Philly's pathetic tally of five goals scored in 2012 (tied for worst in the league) is dwarfed by New York's 20. Kenny Cooper and Thierry Henry alone have combined for 17.
  • Juan Agudelo returned from a knee injury to appear as a substitute in the 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy, his first appearance since the season opener. That game also marked Ryan Meara's third straight shutout. The rookie leads MLS with 37 saves.
  • Gabriel Farfan is suspended for this game. The 23-year-old started a midweek friendly against Schalke 04, which Philly won 2-1.
