Secondly, both teams wish to improve their form in the remainder of the regular season. Knowing all this, it’s clear that the Philadelphia vs. LAFC game on Saturday is going to be a real barnburner.

Game Preview

Philadelphia Union is sitting in the No. 4 position in the Eastern Conference with a 14-6-8 record (48 points). With a little bit of luck, Philly could get to the second spot in the conference after this weekend. For that to happen, the boys from Pennsylvania need to beat the reigning MLS Cup champions.

One thing going in Philadelphia’s favor is that its players usually do well at home. At Subaru Park in Chester, the Union is 9-3-1 in the MLS this season. Their only home loss in the 2023 MLS happened back in March.

Los Angeles FC is also great at home, but this Saturday, the champions play on the road. In away games, they are 3-5-6 in the 2023 season and are winless since mid-June. In their most recent game on the road, they drew 0-0 with St. Louis City. That result is kind of strange because LAFC’s strongest weapon is its offense.

Philadelphia Union vs. Los Angeles FC Prediction

Five of the seven Philadelphia vs. LAFC duels ever played finished in a tie. We think the same might happen with the one on Saturday, September 23. Not only are they similar in terms of player quality, but these two wouldn’t mind collecting a point each.
