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.

  • Toronto FC could rest some starters in this match, as it is out of contention for the MLS playoffs and has an important CONCACAF Champions League match versus FC Dallas just three days later.
  • 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.
