Toronto FC look to bounce back from a midweek loss at Atlanta United and slow down the surging Philadelphia Union when the Eastern Conference foes meet at BMO Field Saturday afternoon.

Toronto (5-3-1) fell to Atlanta United, 2-0, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium Wednesday night with Josef Martinez setting up goals by Hector Villalba and Julian Gressel in each half. 

Philadelphia (6-3-2) sit atop the Eastern Conference after a 6-1 thrashing of the New England Revolution at Talen Energy Stadium last Saturday night. Led by a Sergio Santos brace, the Union scored five times after halftime to cruise to a lopsided victory. 

The Reds pulled away late for a 3-0 victory over the Union in the last meeting between the teams in Toronto last May.
