Philadelphia Union vs New England Rev. Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Philadelphia Union enter into the match after a 2-1 loss against Tampa Bay Rowdies in the Suncoast Invitational game during the weekend. It was a disappointing campaign for Philadelphia as the team finished outside the play-off places. Philadelphia have now been able to qualify for the play-offs only once in the last four MLS campaigns. New England Revolution had little success in the friendly matches, but the team comes on the back of a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City last week. New England finished just three points above Philadelphia in the previous campaign.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Revolution were able to get two wins in the last four meetings with Philadelphia Union, but both those victories have been at home. When it comes to travelling to the Talen Energy Stadium, New England have not done so well with their last victory coming in 2015. Philadelphia have made some crucial acquisitions and they can have a bigger impact than Revolution’s signings. I would back a win for Philadelphia Union. This fixture has continuously produced a large number of goals. The US Open meeting in July 2016 is the only meeting in the last five to have experienced less than 2.5 goals. New England have been measured in their goals department in the friendly matches so far, but I would go with over 2.5 goals in this game.

Philadelphia Union Preview

Philadelphia Union had a disappointing campaign with the team struggling to remain in the play-offs for much of the 2017 season. The acquisition of David Accam goes a long way into pacifying the supporters, who were disgruntled with the club. Philadelphia scored the lowest number of goals amongst the top nine teams in the regular campaign of the 2017 Eastern conference table. The arrival of Accam certainly tries to solve this element, as the former Chicago Fire star had a brilliant 2017 campaign with 14 goals and six assists in 31 MLS games. Charles Sapong finished as the top scorer at Philadelphia last season after managing 16 goals and four assists.

Philadelphia Union Team News

There are no injury or suspension issues for Philadelphia Union.

New England Rev. Preview

The form shown by New England Revolution in the recent friendly matches has not been great, but the club had a decent conclusion to 2017 with only one defeat in the last five games. Over the summer, the club lost some key players like Kei Kamara. At the other end, Cristian Penilla is the high-profile signing after making the switch from Mexican outfit CF Pachuca. Players like Diego Fagundez and Lee Nguyen were key for the Revolution last season. Brad Friedel has been appointed as the manager, but the 46-year-old’s lack of top-level managerial experience can be a hindrance. Revolution managed to finish just outside the play-offs last season, but the club will be looking to avoid a similar disappointment this time around.
