Philadelphia Union and New York City FC Prediction
Philadelphia Union met once in this season’s league. They won comfortably 2-0. Despite having just 27 percent of the ball, the Union managed to have more shots on target and also make their chances count. Alejandro Bedoya scored the first goal of the game in the 12th minute before Daniel Gazdag doubled the lead in the 33rd minute. It was all one-sided from that point, though the Union held firm.
New York City took 18 shots at goal but managed just three on target. They could not convert their chances or make any difference to the score despite being given nine corners.
Previous meetings The honors were shared by these sides over the five previous meetings Each team won two games, while the fifth ended in a draw. At the conclusion of the last season, New York City beat Philadelphia Union. Talles Magno won the late game to defeat them at home.
Alexander Callens’ goal, which was an unfortunate one by the Union, gave them the lead just after the hour. However Maxi Moralez made sure they didn’t stay behind. He scored just two minutes later to level things up, and the Brazilian winger, Magno, got the final goal of the game in the 88th minute. They took all three points with the late goal.
Philadelphia Union Must Convert their Draws into Wins Fast
Philadelphia Union are currently four points behind Los Angeles FC, who have the lowest number of league matches this season. Their eight draws this season are the only explanation. They have lost the most matches in the league, but they still trail Los Angeles FC by four points.
They started the season with five wins, and one draw in six of their six matches. As they were sitting at the top of the table, the Union seemed like the team to beat. After being held in Minnesota United’s opening weekend, they defeated CF Montreal and San Jose Earthquakes as well as New York City FC, Charlotte FC, Charlotte FC, Columbus Crew, and New York City FC in six of the initial six matches.
End of a Run
Their winning streak came to an abrupt halt when they faced Toronto FC. Julian Carranza handed them the lead in the 34th minute, but they could not keep hold of it and ended up losing. Alejandro Pozuelo and Jesus Jimenez scored in each half for Canada, which was enough to give the Union its first loss of the season.
Since then, the Philadelphia Union has struggled to turn draws into wins. The Union have lost seven out of eight matches in their last eight, dropping more points than other top 5 teams.
In the five most recent games they drew against Inter Miami CF and New England Revolution as well as FC Cincinnati. They conceded only three goals and didn’t leak any goals. However, their attack was poor.
Their only recent win was against Portland Timbers. With goals by Sergio Santos and Daniel Gazdag, they won at Providence Park 2-0 in May. In the fifth minute of play, the first goal was scored. The second occurred three minutes later. The Union managed just 34% of the possession in the game but had four shots on target – twice as many as Portland Timbers – and the same number of attempts at goal (12).
Their journey to the US Open Cup came to an abrupt halt in round one. They lost 2-1 to Orlando City, who had taken a 2-0 lead via Ercan Kara and Andres Perea early in the second half before Stuart Findlay scored in the 77th minute to make it an exciting end. They were eliminated after that score did not spark a comeback.

San Jose Earthquakes couldn’t do more as NYCFC won 3-0. Their winning streak was over when Sporting Kansas City held them to an ineligible draw. New York City FC didn’t let this draw affect them. They have performed exceptionally in their last five league matches. The first was a 2-0 win over Columbus Crew, followed by a 2-1 victory against DC United. Although Chicago Fire has been struggling, they were able to overcome NYCFC’s challenges and win a narrow 1-0 victory over their rock-bottom counterparts. NYCFC also had to contend with
Dominant, but not always successful Minnesota United. However, they were able to win again. Alexander Callens scored the lone goal of the match in the 29th minute as the defending champions could not make the most of their other chances and struggled in front of the goal.
Their winning streak came to an abrupt halt when Colorado Rapids tied them at 1-1. Rapids’ Michael Barrios got the goal that would end the match in less than a minute. Talles Magno, NYCFC’s fourth goal of the game, scored four minutes later to even things. However, despite having 66 percent possession, the reigning champions could not get the win they were looking for.
