Our prediction for this MLS match:
Philadelphia Union will be aiming to extend their winning run to four matches when they host Charlotte to their Subaru Park on Sunday. The U’s look unstoppable at the start of the season, and as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Jim Curtin has no fresh injury worries, and he is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated New York City on the road.
Charlotte, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over New England Revolution and Cincinnati, but seeing that they struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on the in-form hosts. Both Franco and Makoun are back from international duty, speaking of the away side. It has to be noted that the two sides meet for the first time in the Major League Soccer.
Highlighted Player (Andre Blake):
Andre Blake is a Jamaican goalkeeper who plays for MLS club Philadelphia Union. Blake was born in May Pen, Jamaica, on November 21, 1990, but he went to the UConn college in United States of America. The 193-cm-tall shoot-stopper spent three years playing college football and in 2014 he signed a professional contract with Philadelphia Union.
Andre Blake made his debut for the U in July 2014 in a friendly game against Crystal Palace and he played his first MLS match against Montreal Impact. Speaking of his international career, the goalkeeper made his Jamaica debut on March 2, 2014 in a 2-0 victory over Barbados. Later that year Andre Blake won the Caribbean Cup with the Reggae Boyz as they defeated Trinidad and Tobago on penalties in the title game.
Over the years Blake has established himself as a first-team regular and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him. The Philadelphia Union shoot-stopper wears the number 18 on his shirt.
