Philadelphia Union (LLWWD)
Philadelphia Union have been quite disappointing and their results shows that. Despite starting the season with an emphatic 4-1 win against Columbus Crew, they have not been able to maintain their winning form as many expected them to. In their last 5 matches, they had 2 wins , 2 losses and 1 draw. In their last two games in the MLS, they lost to Montreal and Orlando City. Orlando City were already 2 goals up in the opening 9 minutes, as Martin Ojeda and Ivan Angulo scored two quick goals. Andres Perea pulled one back for Philadelphia in the 17th minute, but Philadelphia Union could do nothing more through the game to change the scoreline. Philadelphia Union had just 47% of the possession, 6 shots on target and 7 corner kicks in that game.
Philadelphia Union are 8th in the eastern conference table, with 6 points from the opening 5 matches and a goal ratio of 8:8.
