The Philadelphia Union faces off against Tijuana in Subaru Park. Philadelphia Union is trying to keep the momentum going, coming off two big wins over Nashville and NYCFC. Tijuana is looking to make a statement in this all-around good win for the Union.
The Union would start the game with a lot of offensive pressure. Constantly shooting the ball at the net, however, to use hockey terms Julian Carranza was on a breakaway, but then he was failed by defender Nicolas Diaz which led the official with no choice but to throw up a red card. Jim Curtain selects Daniel Gazdag to take the penalty kick. Daniel Gazdag leads the league with eight penalty goals so it would make perfect sense on why Jim Curtain would do that. And just like that Daniel Gazdag nails a penalty kick. That would put the Union on the scoreboard.
Speak about offensive pressure. Julian Carranza was making very uncomfortable for Tijuana goalkeeper Jose Antonio Rodriguez making a tough day at the office for him. Julian Carranza would make a goal, and the refs had to double-check to see if Julian Carranza would go out offsides, and the call was made it was a good goal. And By the way. That was a sick goal! The two Tijuana defenders were left alone in front of the net. The offense is making good ball movement; however, Julian Carranza creates space and makes a good goal happen.
Andre Blake would get tested early between the pipes, but nothing would prevail. Blake did give up one bad goal. it was from the Tijuana best stiker Carlos Gonzalez. After that Andre Blake got into his zone where nothing gets by him. Carlos Gonzales would get a penalty kick, and Andre Blake would shut it down. He is showing why he’s a three-time goalkeeper of the year. Blake is a big reason for this all-around good win for the Union.
