ℹ️ Team News: Philadelphia Union

The Philadelphia Union boss Jim Curtin will be grateful not to have any fitness worries whatsoever before this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.

It seems likely that The U look set to employ a 4-4-2 system in the match featuring Oliver Semmle, Nathan Harriel, Jakob Glesnes, Damion Lowe, Kai Wagner, Quinn Sullivan, Alejandro Bedoya, Jack McGlynn, Leon Flach, Mikael Uhre and Dániel Gazdag.

ℹ️ Team News: New York City FC

Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s just the one fitness problem for the New York City FC manager Nick Cushing to contend with. Maxi Moralez (Cruciate ligament tear) won’t be playing here.

We reckon that The Pigeons might utilise a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Matt Freese, Mitja Ilenic, Thiago Martins, Birk Risa, Kevin OToole, Keaton Parks, James Sands, Hannes Wolf, Santiago Rodríguez, Agustin Ojeda and Monsef Bakrar.

💡 Prediction

In this match, New York City FC are dangerous enough to put one past this Philadelphia Union team, although that may not quite be as many as they’ll concede.

We’re predicting a 2-1 advantage for Philadelphia Union when the full-time whistle blows. It should be a decent one.
