Philadelphia Union vs Cincinnati FC Match Preview
The Philadelphia Union take the field tonight against Cincinnati FC, as they look to end the season strong with nine games remaining.
Cincinnati FC Scouting Report:
With a record of 3-6-3, Cincinnati are near the bottom of the Eastern Conference, however their last four games would suggest otherwise. They have only allowed four goals in their last five matches.
Cincinnati Player to Watch
Cincinnati’s playmaking is led by a familiar face. Midfielder Haris Medunjanin has no negative feelings regarding his former club but when the whistle blows it comes down to business.
“It’s nice in the beginning and you can say hi but when the game starts, it’s finished…we can talk when we take the three points.”– Cincinnati FC Midfielder Haris Medunjanin
Union coach Jim Curtin had great things to say about him earlier this week.
“The best passer in MLS.”– Union Head Coach Jim Curtin
Prediction: 2-1, Union
I think this game will be closer than most people think and Cincinnati’s defense could cause some problems for the Union. However, I see the Union walking away with three points tonight and continuing their chase for first place in the Eastern Conference.
