A slew of draws has steadied the Union around the top four in the Eastern Conference this season, but a lack of recent wins means they haven't quite pushed their way forward like they might have hoped.
The chance of a major scalp against their visitors from the Big Apple might just do the trick to fire them onwards.
Predicted Philadelphia starting XI: Blake; Wagner, Elliott, Glesnes, Harriel; McGlynn, Martinez, Bedoya; Gazdag; Carranza, Burke
|Goalkeepers||Johnson, Barraza, Mizell|

They may be out of the U.S. Open Cup now but everything else is looking pretty rosy for New York City right now.
They sit at the summit of the Eastern Conference heading into this weekend, with games in hand on several rivals too - and can stretch themselves a little more with a neat victory too.
Predicted NYCFC starting XI: Johnson; Gray, Martins, Callens, Amundsen; Parks, Morales; Rodriguez, Moralez, Magno; Castellanos
