Prediction: Philadelphia Union vs New York City FC – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

New York City FC travel to Subaru Park on Thursday to face yourself Philadelphia Union in the Eastern Conference MLS, with both teams currently sitting in a playoff finals series place.

The hosts have played one game more than their opponents this week, but New York City have scored three points more than Union in their first 18 games.


Prediction for this match

Jim CurtinThe team goes into the game against New York City after a disappointment in the first leg of the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League when they faced the Mexican club Club America.

On Friday, Club America dominated possession against Philadelphia, who lost by scoring in the first half Richard Sanchez and a late sentence of Emmanuel Aguilera.

That game also proved costly as a right-back Olivier Mbaizo was sent off due to injury after 34 minutes and will be a big miss for the home side on Thursday as he has played in every MLS game so far this season.

Philadelphia’s last game in the league was against Eastern Conference leaders New England Revolution.

Union has the second best defensive record in the Eastern MLS this season, conceding 19 goals in as many games.

New York City is currently in an unbeaten run of six games in the MLS, which last continued when Ronny Deila‘s team triumphed against Inter Miami.

Top scorer Valentin Castellanos sealed the game in the Red Bull Arena before half-time and completed his brace with a penalty just before the break.

The home side failed to get many of their shots on target, but they were efficient with those who went straight on Nick MarsmanGoal and scored two of the three shots they had on target.

That win would boost morale at New York camp after the team were knocked out of the League Cup in the pre-match game against Inter Miami, and the three points on Sunday mean Deila’s side remain within reach of New England with two games in hand on the table tops.

New York City have already faced Philadelphia once this season when the away team won 2-0 thanks to goals Jesus Medina and Castellanos.

New York City FC head coach Ronny Deila on May 15, 2021

Both Anthony Fontana and Jack De Vries have been absent from Philadelphia for the past few weeks due to a concussion but the two midfielders are expected to return to action by the middle of this month.

defender Alvas Powell has been sidelined since late July with a hamstring injury, but returned to the field in the last game against Club America for Philadelphia, replacing Mbaizo in the first half of the game.

With Mbaizo injured in this game, Powell is expected to join the starting XI on Thursday Jack Elliott, Jacob Glesnes and Kai Wagner in the back four.

New York City Lifter and Gedion Zelalem will continue to be absent from the squad as they recover from injury and Deila could call the same starting XI that beat Inter Miami last time out.

Striker Castellanos is sure to lead the line for the away team as he has already surpassed last season’s six goals and provided more assists to his teammates.

Philadelphia Union possible starting line-up:
Blake; Wagner, Glesnes, Elliott, Powell; Martinez; Flat, bedoya; Gazdag; Sanots, Przybylko

Probability: Philadelphia Union 1-2 New York City FC

New York City will try to emulate their victory they won at Subaru Park in May, and they will be confident of doing so after gathering a string of positive results.

Castellanos are in good shape, having participated in four goals in their last two games and will pose a great threat to the Philadelphia defense, who have conceded four goals in their last two games.
