Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Talen Energy Stadium when Philadelphia Union and Toronto FC face each other in the Major League Soccer derby. The U are enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the second position in the Eastern Conference ahead of the visit of Toronto. Philadelphia are breathing down the Reds’ neck, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s showdown. Midfielder Jose Martinez should return from international duty for the hosts.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the standings. Toronto have been in a splendid form of late, and they are surely capable of matching Philadelphia at Talen Energy Stadium. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment; therefore, there is a big value in betting on draw. Bono and Mavinga (both illness) are rated doubtful for the hosts, while Michael Bradley should replace injured Jonathan Osorio in the Toronto starting XI.
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.
