Philadelphia Union vs Tijuana Lineups & Team News

Philadelphia Union

Philly haven’t lost at home in 10 games on the spin! And coach Jim Curtin’s troops faced some very difficult opponents such as 2023 Major League Soccer champions Los Angeles, Liga MX’s Atlas, and in-form New England Revolution. Surely, Tijuana aren’t going to be much of a threat.

Predicted lineup – Bendik (GK), Real, Elliott, Glesnes, Mbaizo, Martinez, Flach, Bedoya, Gazdag, Uhre & Carranza

Tijuana

The Pack’s previous match was a fortunate 2-1 victory over old rivals Cruz Azul. The game at Caliente Stadium saw 50-50 possession, and the result could’ve gone either way. Coach Miguel Herrera’s boys were fortunate to keep the three points home, but we doubt luck will play a role in our Philadelphia Union vs Tijuana predictions, as the home team is just too good to ignore.

Predicted lineup – A. Rodriguez (GK), Armenta, Godinez, A. Lopez, Diaz, Martinez, L. Rodriguez, Lertora, L. Lopez, Canelo & Cavallini

Player to Watch: Daniel Gazdag

The 2022 Major League Soccer Golden Boot runner-up will do his best on Sunday to prove he’s no has-been. With nine goals and five assists to his name in the 2023 MLS season, Daniel Gazdag is proving to be a valuable asset to coach Curtin this season. He surely deserves to be under the spotlight in our Philadelphia Union vs Tijuana prediction, and considering how poorly the visitors have been defending this season, we fully anticipate seeing a goal from the 27-year-old Hungarian attacking midfielder.
