Neither side has the advantage ahead of the kick-off, but we still believe Philly is the stronger team.

Philadelphia Union team news and form: Disappointing last game

Coach Jim Curtin was going for the three points at Audi Field last week when his boys faced Benteke and his colleagues. Yes, Philadelphia Union were the better of the two teams on the pitch – they had more possession and shots at target, but the result on the scoreboard was 2-2 after 90 minutes of play.

Predicted lineup: Semmie (GK), Wagner, Lowe, Glesnes, Harriel, Sullivan, Bedoja, McGlynn, Flach, Carranza & Gazdag

Player to watch: Daniel Gazdag

We fancy Daniel Gadzag’s chances of being the difference-maker in this game, as the Hungarian attacking midfielder has been at his lethal best throughout the last couple of seasons for Philly. If anyone has the capability of proving our Philadelphia Union vs Orlando City predictions correct, it has to be him.

Gazdag on fire in MLS

So far, Daniel Gazdag scored six goals and supplied a teammate with one assist. He has seven goal contributions in 2024, and we are sure he’d like to up his tally a bit this week.
