Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union Lineups & Team News

Columbus Crew

After the massive 3-0 success over Chicago Fire, the Crew were about to throw all their good work down the drain in the match against Dallas at Toyota Stadium. Nkosi Tafari scored a misfortunate own goal, and that was all the scoring the Crew did. However, we believe this match was a fluke, and our Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union predictions will have no issues succeeding.

Predicted lineup – Schulte (GK), Amundsen, Camacho, Moreira, Gressel, Zawadzki, Morris, Yeboah, Rossi, Hernandez & Matan

Philadelphia Union

With 51 goals scored in this campaign, Philly have the 2nd-best attacking record in the Eastern Conference. The only club with a more impressive attacking tally is Columbus Crew, with 60. However, we believe coach Jim Curtin’s side has a potent chance of finding the net.

Predicted lineup – Blake (GK), Harriel, Lowe, Elliott, Wagner, Bedoya, Anez, McGlynn, Gazdag, Carranza & Uhre

Player to Watch: Daniel Gazdag

If our Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union predictions fail, it would be because Daniel Gazdag has had a strong game. With 13 goals to his name in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign, the 27-year-old Hungarian is without a doubt a constant in coach Jim Curtin’s formation. The Hungarian is only two goals away from reaching the top of the goalscoring charts in Major League Soccer. That’s where you find players such as Hany Mukhtar and Luciano Acosta.
