What more is there to be said that has not already been said? It’s a battle for first place in the Eastern Conference. The Philadelphia Union (8-5-10) are on the road for what is without a doubt their biggest match of the season thus far, a date with Columbus Crew (10-7-7). Kickoff at Columbus Crew Stadium is scheduled for 8:06:30 PM ET (NOTE: Due to yesterday’s storms which caused travel delays, the kickoff time has been moved back from the original 7:30 start time.)
