Philadelphia Union vs Atlanta United Preview

Jim Curtin’s Philadelphia Union have jostled for the lead of the Eastern Conference throughout the majority of the MLS 2022 season, but have been playing second fiddle to LA and Austin in the race for the Supporters’ Shield this season. At least that was the case up until July. Starting with a 7-0 win over D.C. on July 8 at Subaru Park, the Union went on a run of five straight wins and have won seven of their past nine games heading into this fixture. 

Since that 7-0 win, the Union have gone on to score 5+ goals twice more (vs. Houston and D.C. again), and are now the second-highest goalscorers in the 2022 MLS with 57 goals. 22 Year Old Julián Carranza has been in red-hot form in front of goal for Philadelphia this season, scoring two hattricks and 23 goals in just 25 appearances

The team also holds the best defensive record in the division, with 20 goals against ten fewer than LAFC have conceded. 

As for Atlanta United, the 2018 MLS Champions have experienced a far more inconsistent time of things this season. Gonzalo Pineda’s Five Stripes are yet to win consecutive games all season, and head into this fixture down in 21st and eliminated from playoff contention.
