There’s no question Philadelphia has looked better than New England throughout this season.
Can the Revolution pull of a surprise and pick up a win away from home?
How to Watch
What: Philadelphia Union vs New England Revolution
Where: Talen Energy Stadium, Chester, Pennsylvania
When: Saturday May 4 @ 6:30 EST
How: MLS Live ESPN+, MLS Live DAZN, NBC Sports Boston, PHIL 17
New England Revolution (Away)
Head Coach: Brad Friedel
Key Players: Carles Gil, Juan Fernando Caicedo, Cody Cropper
Standings: 2-6-2 (12th Eastern Conference)
The Revolution have struggled this year, yielding less than a point per game.
They have scored a decent 10 goals but those efforts are muffled by 19 goals allowed.
Goal and assist leader will have to Carles Gil will need to step up in order to pull off an upset against the Union.
In a tightly contested Eastern Conference, the Revolution can easily move up the ranks with a win at Talen Energy Stadium.
The defense will need to be on point and avoid allowing more goals for the Revolution to compete in this matchup.
Philadelphia Union (home)
Head Coach: Jim Curtin
Key Players: Marco Fabián, David Accam, Andre Blake
Standings: 4-3-2 (3rd Eastern Conference)
Goal and assist leader David Accam will be coming for the weak Revolution defense in this match.
The 13 goals scored so far this season should increase as four Union players have scored more than twice.
This club is looking to advance their standing in the Eastern Conference, as they trail the Montreal Impact by only one game.
As the favorite, the Union is looking to capitalize.
The one weak point in the squad is goalkeeper Andre Blake, who has faced 20 shots and has 10 saves.
Improving that ratio will be key, and he has an opportunity to do so today as Revolution is not a strong offensive threat.
Odd and Predictions
The New England Revolution are big underdogs in this matchup with Carles Gil seeming to be the only forward pulling weight.
Philadelphia is 3-1-0 at home and I doubt they will falter this Saturday.
The Union offence has a chance to capitalize on a New England team who has allowed 19 goals on the year.
The Union will likely walk away with a victory and continue to be a mighty force in the Eastern conference.
