Next Saturday at 2:30am GMT, on matchday 26 of the MLS, we will see Union play D.C. at Subaru Park.

D.C. currently sit in thirteenth place as they travel to second placed Union.

Philadelphia Union have 30 points to their name, going into this tie

When Union last turned out in the MLS, the result was a disappointing draw 0-0 against Columbus Crew at MAPFRE Stadium. They will be hoping for a better result this time.

Also, with eight draws in 11 matches, Manager Jim Curtin has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. They currently stand second in the League, with 30 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

When Union host D.C., they will do so on the back of four victories and five darts on their own ground.

Philadelphia Union will see 33 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

It’s 17 points so far for D.C. United this season, going into this meeting

Chad Ashton will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Also, Chad Ashton’s D.C. have lost nine of their last 14 matches this season. With a thirteenth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 17 points in the League.

It must be a worrying prospect for D.C. to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two wins, one dart, and four defeat to the home team.

A win in this fixture, would take D.C. United’s points from 17 to 20, so far this season.
