New England Revolution Ne vs Philadelphia Union Phi Picks and Predictions May 18th 2024

Union, Revolution Meet with Both Desperate for a Win


The Philadelphia Union have not tasted victory in over a month, and the New England Revolution have the fewest points in MLS. When these two teams face off on Saturday in Foxborough,Mass., it might not have the same hype as the Revolution’s recent home game against Lionel Messi and Inter Miami, but both squads are searching for a important- demanded spark.

Philadelphia Union’s Recent Performance

Winless Streak and Home Struggles

The Union( 3-4-5, 14 points) are stuck in a six- game winless streak( 0-4-2) and have lost four straight matches at home, setting a club record. They nearly salvaged a draw against New York City FC on Wednesday but fell 2- 1 when an offside call wiped out Jack Elliott’s would- be equalizer deep into second- half stoppage time.” We’ve to find a way to get out of this. We are the only people that are going to get us out of it,” Philadelphia head trainer Jim Curtin said.” The people in that locker room, the trainers, the players, they recognize that.”

Daniel Gazdag( seven goals) and Julian Carranza( five goals) are the Union’s top scorers. Carranza scored beforehand in the second half against NYCFC to cut a 2- 0 deficit in half. Gazdag, however, was held off the scoresheet on Wednesday for just the fourth time this season.

New England Revolution’s Recent Performance

Disappointing launch and Scoring Struggles

New England( 2-8-1, 7 points) has had a rough start to their 2024 season, their first under two- time MLS Cup– winning head trainer Caleb Porter. Scoring has been their biggest issue, with just nine goals this season — the lowest in MLS. Porter’s team plays six of their next eight games at home, and he’s hoping the Revolution can mound up points during this stretch to climb the standings.

” It’s a very important stretch, no doubt, because we are at home so much and because of where we are at in the league,” Porter said.” When I look at this chunk of games, it’s important to step up and correct where we are at.”

The Revs’ dismal attack will aim to improve against a Union defense that has conceded 21 goals, tied for the seventh-highest total in the league.

Carles Gil, with a team-high four goals, and Giacomo Vrioni, with two, scored in New England’s 4- 2 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. Tomas Chancalay( two goals) and Nacho Gil( one goal) have accounted for the rest of the Revs’ scoring this season.

Key Players and Performances

Philadelphia Union

Daniel Gazdag and Julian Carranza are the Union’s leading goal scorers. Carranza’s goal early in the second half against NYCFC shows his capability to make critical plays. The Union’s defense, which has allowed 21 goals, needs to strain up to secure a win.

New England Revolution

Carles Gil and Giacomo Vrioni have been crucial contributors for the Revolution, with Gil leading the team with four goals. The Revs need to find a way to break through the Union’s defense to turn their season around.
