DID YOU KNOW?
  • The Union have moved into first place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of Sporting Kansas City, thanks to a 2-0 win at Seattle last weekend.

  • Philadelphia can clinch a playoff berth with a victory in this match.
  • TFC gave up a late equalizer to Thierry Henry in its last match, a 1-1 home draw against New York.
  • Michael Farfan has started and played 90 minutes in six straight games for Philadelphia, and the Union have not lost in the same span.
  • Despite only appearing in nine games so far, Danny Koevermans leads TFC in scoring with seven goals.
