Key Match For Union Saturday Against Montreal

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Philadelphia Union will be home on Saturday night to host the Montreal Impact in MLS action.

Both these teams are in the thick of the playoff race. Philadelphia is currently fourth in the Eastern Conference with 40 points (top six make the playoffs), while Montreal is fifth with 37 points. Right now D.C. United sits in seventh place with 32 points.

Philadelphia will be looking to bounce back from a 3-0 road loss in its last match against the Chicago Fire last Saturday. The Impact are also coming off a poor performance. On Wednesday, Montreal lost at home to Orlando City, 4-1.

These two teams have met twice already this season. Back on May 14th in Chester, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. Then on July 23rd up in Canada, the Impact blitzed the Union, 5-1.

KYW's Matt Leon spoke with Matthew De George of the Delco Times about the Union and what to look for against the Impact.
