The Philadelphia Union will play the first playoff game in their team's brief MLS history today as they take on the Houston Dynamo at PPL Park (5pm, ESPN2).
The Dynamo finished the regular season on a strong run to grab the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, but take on a Union side that has been very tough to beat at home.
MVP candidates Brad Davis and Sebastien LeToux will be key for their respective teams, but it will be up to the defenses to avoid mistakes in what should be a physical and low-scoring series.
