Two of the biggest surprise stories in Major League Soccer will square off in a nationally televised match Saturday afternoon at PPL Park.
The Philadelphia Union, led by Gold Cup-bound forward Jack McInerney, are coming off of back-to-back 3-0 wins. On Saturday, they take on a FC Dallas squad that has cooled off after racing out to a hot start in the Western Conference.
Another top matchup tonight will be the California Classico between San Jose and Los Angeles at Stanford Stadium. Both sides will be missing players in the days ahead with Gold Cup duties, so look for these rivals to go all out for a win with their full-strength squads.
