Philadelphia Union vs DC United for the Major League Soccer championship match on Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium.
Philadelphia hosts a DC United needing points in a match refereed by Christopher Penso in MLS.
With this match, they start an essential run of three straight home games, where they will face DC United first, leader Atlanta United next and will close with Los Angeles.
Olivier Mbaizo and Sergio Santos are in doubt concerning injury.
They will not have the best player on the team. Wayne Rooney will not be able to play as he is suspended for getting a red card in his team’s last game.
They are not living the best time having only one win in their last six MLS games. They still don’t seem to be in danger of losing their playoff spot, especially as they are just two points behind the New York Red Bulls in fourth place.
Without Rooney available, Ola Kamara could occupy his starting position by sharing the attack with Paul Arriola.
One advantage in their favour is that they have one of the best goalkeepers in MLS. Bill Hamid has served in over 100 saves so far this season, the second-best goalkeeper in that section.
Both teams met recently on August 5th, DC United welcomed Philadelphia and the game ended with a visiting team victory of 1-5.
Someone will win the game, considering that none have drawn in the last 10 games played. The balance always leans in favour of someone.
