Philadelphia Union team news and form: Unlucky Curtin fuming

Coach Jim Curtin was extremely upset over the surprise 2-3 loss at Subaru Park against Seattle Sounders last week. Philadelphia Union were by far the better of the two teams on the pitch, as coach Curtin’s players had more possession, more shots on target, and more shots at target in 90 minutes of play.

Predicted lineup: Blake (GK), Mbaizo, Elliott, Lowe, Harriel, Martinez, Sullivan, Bueno, Gazdag, Adedeji & Uhre

Player to watch: Christian Benteke

We consider Christian Benteke as the only obstacle standing in the way of our DC United vs Philadelphia Union predictions. The Former Crystal Palace and Liverpool star is at his best this season, scoring eight goals since the start of the campaign.

Can Benteke outscore Messi?

Lionel Messi took the lead in the goalscoring department, with his two goals against New England last week, but there’s still enough time for Benteke to show he has what it takes to compete with the greatest player of our generation.
