Philadelphia Union vs New England Revolution Preview
The Philadelphia Union take the field tonight in New England as they play the Revolution once again. After a disappointing draw vs D.C United, the Union are looking to bounce back.
This Union has yet to lose against the Revolution this season, but the Revolution’s turf field has caused them some problems. Every game so far has been very close and competitive. Union head coach Jim Curtin talked about it earlier this week.
“Every game has been very tight, highly contested, and very competitive. They were all one-play games…not a lot of chances for either team… it’s going to come down to who executes in the penalty box.”
The Revolution currently sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference and are looking to move up in the standings as we get closer to the MLS Playoffs. Both teams have very good defenses, so I would expect a low scoring game in New England.
Players to Watch:
Brendan Aaronson: Following the announcement of his transfer to FC Red Bull Salzburg this January, Aaronson is ready to finish his final season with the Union holding a trophy.
Teal Bunbury: The leading goal scorer for the Revolution looks to add another goal in the column tonight against a very good Union defense.
