Philadelphia Union dominate Toronto FC across the board, win 3-0
The Philadelphia Union had one of their most complete games this season, dominating Toronto FC 3-0. The Union exploded for three goals in a 24-minute span. Philadelphia’s first goal came early on from Jakob Glesnes in just the 12th minute.
Shortly after that, Daniel Gazdag notched Philadelphia’s second goal in the 33rd minute via a penalty kick. And to complete the dominant run, Sergio Santos scored almost immediately after Gazdag’s PK in the 36th minute.
Not only was the Union’s offense on fire, but their defense was incredible. Looking at the shot chart, Philadelphia had 17 shots while Toronto had just six, just one of which was on target. Toronto’s only other opportunity for a goal was a penalty kick which Andre Blake shut down in spectacular fashion.
Following last night’s win, the Philadelphia Union are in third place in the Eastern Conference. They are just one point behind second-place Orlando, who has played one less game than Philadelphia. The Union are back in action on Sunday on the road against New England.
