Minnesota United FC vs. Philadelphia Union | 2019 MLS Match Preview

2019 MLS Regular Season — Week 14
Minnesota United FC vs. Philadelphia Union 
Allianz Field — St. Paul
June 2 - 4:00 PM ET


Minnesota United look to remain unbeaten at Allianz Field when they host a Philadelphia Union that earned just two points from a three game homestand when the sides meet Sunday afternoon.

The Loons (6-5-3) are looking to bounce back from a 3-0 midweek loss at Atlanta United. Franco Escobar opened the scoring in the first half and Josef Martinez tacked on a late brace to lift the hosts. 

The Union (7-4-4) squandered a first-half lead and settled for a 1-1 draw against the Colorado Rapids Wednesday night at Talen Energy Stadium. Sergio Santos put the hosts in front, but Jonathan Lewis leveled in the second half for the Rapids as Philadelphia paid for a lack of sharpness in the attacking third.
