Philadelphia is 9-10-11 this season and with 38 points they sit 7th in the Eastern Conference. They trail fifth place New York by three points. The top five teams in each conference qualify for the postseason.

Last time out the Union lost to D.C. United down at RFK Stadium on Saturday, 1-0.

Chicago comes to town with a 5-8-16 record, good for 31 points. They are ninth in the ten-team Eastern Conference. They fell to Houston, 2-0, in their last match on Sunday.

These two teams played to a 1-1 tie back on July 19th in Bridgeview, Illinois. In their first meeting this season, they played to a 2-2 draw on April 5th. That match was also on the Fire’s home pitch.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Union TV commentator Peter Pappas about what to expect tonight.
