The Philadelphia Union returns home after a rough road trip hoping to add some points to the win column. Those points will have to come against an opponent on a bit of a hot streak of its own.
The Union take on FC Dallas today at Lincoln Financial Field (4pm, Telefutura) in the final home game before the Union moves into brand new PPL Park next month. Philadelphia will look to stop an FC Dallas side that has suffered just one loss this season and is on a two-game winning streak.
The Union will need the tandem of Sebastien LeToux and Alejandro Moreno to test an FC Dallas defense that has posted consecutive shutouts, but that is still susceptible to quality forwards. Dallas will look to get 2009 MLS scoring leader Jeff Cunningham going after he scored his first non-penalty kick goal of the season last week. I see the Union stepping up today and delivering a victory (My prediction: Union 2, FC Dallas 1) for the more than 25,000 fans expected to attend.
One of those fans will be SBI reader Joshua Tuscan, who won the SBI Philadelphia Union Ticket Contest. He received two club seat tickets for today's match.
