The Vancouver Whitecaps will attempt to push their winning streak to three games when they visit the Philadelphia Union Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium.
The Whitecaps (6-5-5) can also extend their unbeaten stretch to seven. Following four consecutive draws, they won back-to-back games as they head cross country to face the Union.
In their most recent game, a 5-2 win over Orlando City SC, 17-year-old forward Alphonso Davies scored one goal and notched three assists on his way to being named MLS Player of the Week.
Vancouver has scored 16 goals in its last six games.
Davies made his debut at the age of 15 and it's natural to wonder how long he'll remain with the Whitecaps.
"It's a good question," manager Carl Robinson told the Vancouver Sun. "I try to protect him; I know there are vultures out there, and I'm just trying to let him develop at his rate. Since I first played him two years ago, when he was 15 to now, his body's changing, his mindset is changing, and it's important we take time with him. But when he performs like that, there's no hiding him. He'll be all over the TVs and newspapers."
The Union (5-7-3) have dropped their last two league games - 3-1 at Atlanta United FC and 2-0 at home against Toronto FC.
Philadelphia will be without midfielder Haris Medunjanin, whose suspension was extended two more games after an outburst in Atlanta two weeks ago.
"Just recently got word from the league that Haris will miss two more games, so three games in total," Union head coach Jim Curtin told reporters. "There was an appeal from the players' union that wasn't upheld. I don't agree with it, but we have to live with it."
The Union dropped consecutive games twice this season. Both times, they responded with a victory.
There will be a ceremony at halftime to induct Sebastien Le Toux into the Union's Ring of Honor.
