The Philadelphia Union, a powerhouse at home

This season, the Philadelphia Union has not lost a single game at home. From the comfort of Subaru Park, the Eastern Conference leaders will host CF Montreal on Saturday, a team that has stood out on the road this month.

It will already be a second duel between the two clubs, in their eighth match this year. In their opening Major League Soccer (MLS) campaign at home on March 5 at the Olympic Stadium, the Bleu-Blanc-Noir had been beaten 2 to 1.

Since then, the Union has accumulated victories, especially at home. Jim Curtin’s men allowed just one goal at Subaru Park in a 1-1 draw with Minnesota United FC. Since 2021, Philadelphia has even maintained a record of 14 wins, three losses and four draws.

CF Montreal has been riding a good wave lately, with points in its last four games and three wins in a row. He won on the lawn of FC Cincinnati and the New York Red Bulls, and delivered a disappointing draw in the impregnable fortress that is the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, on the side of Atlanta.

You have to go back to 2018 to see Montreal emerge victorious in a game at Subaru Park. In August, CF Montreal had to settle for a 1-1 result after Quinn Sullivan’s equalizing goal in the 87th minute.

The Union dropped its most recent game, last Saturday, against Toronto FC. Head coach Jim Curtin was critical of his backline after the 2-1 loss, but Garber’s second-best defense will likely bounce back. This result ensured that no team remained undefeated in 2022.
