Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire for the Major League Soccer championship match on Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium.
Philadelphia is at the top of the Confederations table standings, but the team seems to be on an apparent loss of form, as in the past six games the team has only won for one occasion, and this has made DC United able to reduce disadvantage.
Currently, the Union has the advantage of only one point and as I just said was able to win only one game in recent games, so there is probably some pressure on the team, even though the team plays with a tenth-placed squad, this game will be very tricky for Union.
Philadelphia has a long list of players who are unlikely to play, such as Warren Creavalle, Olivier Mbaizo, Jamiro Monteiro, Michele Ngalina, Carlos Miguel Coronel and Ilsinho, because of injuries.
Chicago has not won in their last eleven games, and have often conceded goals, conceded two or more goals in six of their previous nine games. It is important to note that they are without wins in their last eleven trips, and they take four consecutive defeats away from home.
The way the team has played in recent weeks, as well as the whole season, indicates that in this match they will adopt an offensive stance in the attempt to score goals and win this match. Chicago Fire has thirteen points of disadvantage for its opponents, which is why the team has nothing to lose and will play open football. The squad does not have too many injury concerns and even suspended players.
Przybyłko has been the Philadelphia Union’s top scorer this season, scoring nine goals so far, and it is quite possible that this number will increase in this game.
