Preview: New York Red Bulls at Philadelphia Union
With the top spot in the East and a berth in next season’s Concacaf Champions League sewn up, the New York Red Bulls look to play out the string in a Sunday match in Chester, PA that means little to either participant. While the Union haven’t officially clinched a playoff spot, Philadelphia will finish fifth or sixth in the East and travel for an Eastern Conference Knockout round match midweek. The prospect of playing three times in eight days means the hosts will surely rest a number of starters on Sunday. New York should field a “strong team” in the words of coach Jesse Marsch, and will go for the win.
