Game Thread: Philadelphia Union 1 Atlanta United 0, Full Time

The Philadelphia Union welcome the Five Stripes for an important Saturday afternoon match




90’+4 The whistle blows on a second straight Union win, their eighth at home this season. Solid performance and a good moment for Jose and Kacper to combine on a goal to stop Atlanta’s win streak at three.

87’ Anthony Fontana is in for Sergio Santos. It feels like a long time ago — given how little he’s played since — that he scored against Atlanta in Champions League.

79’ Quinn Sullivan and Jack McGlynn in for Jose Martinez and Kacper Przybylko

71’ Jose Martinez with a cross from the end line to Przybylko and he puts the Union up 1-0.

69’ Jackson Conway subs in for Moreno for Atlanta and Jake Mulraney is in for Bello.

61’ Elliott with a run into the box and fires a low shot Guzan is able to stop

57’ Paxten Aaronson is in for Daniel Gazdag.

56’ Bad back pass nearly plays in Santos but Guzan gets there in time.

52’ Moreno with a rocketed shot from distance but Andre Blake is there for the stop

45’ +1 Flach gets a hand to the face but no booking and the half comes to an end. All Union and not a great display for the visitors but the Union need to take advantage.

44’ Guzan with a pair of saves to deny Kacper and Gazdag.

40’ Jose Martinez goes into the book. He’s now one yellow away from a suspension.

39’ Another shot from distance from the Union, this time from Monteiro

31’ First booking of the day goes to Atlanta’s Moreno.

29’ Chance for Sergio Santos and he’s somehow called offsides.

The Twitter stream is up!

13’ Scary moment for the Union there with a miscommunication in the back but the Union get by without any damage.

So much for an English-language stream on Twitter. Still nothing. But at least you can still listen to Dave Leno and Sébastien Le Toux on FOX Sports the Gambler.
