Philadelphia Union vs Monterrey Lineups & Team News
There’s no shame in losing 4-1 to Inter Miami. After all, David Beckham’s club signed the prolific Alba – Busquets – Messi trio. What coach Curtin should be worried about is his team’s lack of attacking punch. It’s not that Philly didn’t have goalscoring chances, it’s just that when you make 16 shots at target, you expect your team to score more than once.
Predicted lineup – Blake (GK), Glesnes, Elliott, Lowe, Harriel, Martinez, Flach, Wagner, Gazdag, Anez & Donovan
Rayados qualified for the semi-finals after a breathtaking come-from-behind 2-3 win over 2022 Major League Soccer champions Los Angeles only to get beaten by a sneaky Nashville side. The match was held at GEODIS Park and the home team won, despite clearly lacking in quality. We believe that this is as far as the Mexican side goes as coach Curtin’s boys are the favorites to win, according to our Philadelphia Union vs Monterrey prediction.
Predicted lineup – Andrada (GK), Gallardo, Moreno, Medina, Aguirre, Gonzalez, Govea, Meza, Canales, Rojas & Funes
Player to Watch: Rogelio Funes Mori
After Rogelio Funes Mori scored an 88th-minute winner against Los Angeles on the 12th of August, he couldn’t make chances pay versus Nashville. Monterrey got kicked off the Leagues Cup, but we believe Rogelio Funes Mori would want to at least help Rayados earn 3rd place. He’s the key finisher at coach Fernando Ortiz’s disposal, so we should see him among the starting XI for the Mexican visitors.
