Philadelphia Union meet Montreal Impact in the MLS at the Talen Energy Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Just one point separates these teams in the Eastern Conference going into the game, with both having made fairly solid starts to the season.
Despite a 2-0 loss at LA Galaxy last weekend, Union will be seeking a fourth win in their last five games. For their part, the Montreal Impact hasn’t conceded a goal in their last three games.
Their 11 points from seven games is an impressive return for Montreal Impact, given that they started the season with six games on the road. Montreal Impact won all three points in their home opener with a 1-0 victory against Columbus Crew last Saturday afternoon.
Montreal Impact has acquired Panama international midfielder Omar Browne on loan until the end of the season, with an option to buy. That could help their cause in the absence of the injured Ignacio Piatti, without whom they tend to struggle for goals.
