Saturday night at Subaru Park, the Philadelphia Union continued to show their form in an electric second half to capture their third straight win. The Philadelphia Union quell the Revolution.
With goals by Uhre and Gazdag, the Union have secured all 9 points this week. The Union still stand alone atop the Eastern Conference, with NYCFC only one point behind. Philly dominated on the defensive half of the ball. Allowing only 2 goals in the last 3 matches. Andre Blake made many key saves late, which allowed the attack to really come to form in the second half of the match.
To the Action
Uhre came on as a substitute for Paxton Aaronson in the second half and found space on a corner kick to get the scoring started. It was their second set-piece goal in as many games. Gazdag’s goal came off another penalty kick that was buried off the crossbar. We are getting to see what this club can do. They can dominate defensively with one of the best back lines in the league. The Union follows it up with the incredible pace and offensive ability.
My man of the match is Kai Wagner. With another assist in the match on the Uhre goal, he has 10 on the season thus far. With the next 3 matches being at Orlando City, home against Houston, and at Cincinnati, the Union will be looking to keep up their pace. Most of all maintain their position at the top of the conference table. The Philadelphia Union quell the Revolution.
