This Saturday will be more eventful, as viewers we will get to see two big rivals using all their trump cards to win the game. On one hand Philadelphia Union is yet to open their winning account for this season and on other NYCFC has won seven of their last 15 regular season matches.

The Philadelphia Union will be welcoming New York City FC to Talen Energy Stadium for the team’s first nationally broadcasted game of the season.

In Talen Energy Stadium, Union against NYCFC have a 2-2-1 record, and a 2-1-0 record. In the past, the Union have outscored NYCFC 8-7 overall and 5-3 at home. There have been 24 cards between the two squads in their five games, with NYCFC receiving 15 of them, including a red.

Last year, NYCFC’s three DP’s David Villa, Andrea Pirlo, and Frank Lampard each scored a goal for a 3-2 win over the Union. However, this Saturday will add up more zing to the game and will definitely write another thrilling chapter in the Philadelphia vs. New York rivalry.
