Philadelphia Union

The Union head up to New York on Saturday afternoon to take on the Cityzens in a rematch of the 2021 Eastern Conference Final.

MLSsoccer.com’s Week 3 Power Rankings moved the Union up one place from 4th to 3rd.


NYCFC survived a late surge from Comunicaciones and booked their place in the CCL semi-finals.  Match recap and highlights here.

MLSsoccer.com’s Tom Bogert gives 6 players to watch in the MLS transfer market.


Benfica ousted Ajax from the UEFA Champions league with a 1-0 victory on Tuesday, advancing 3-2 on aggregate. Match Highlights Here.

Atletico Madrid advanced to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, advancing 2-1 on aggregate. Match Highlights Here.

MLSsoccer.com’s Matt Doyle looks at the biggest questions facing Gregg Berhalter and the USMNT heading into the final World Cup qualifying window.


  1. That CCL match between NYCFC and Comunicaciones was wild. I turned it on around the 60th minute and it got crazy.

  2. Disappointing night for MLS in CCL considering the leads that were held.
    Can anyone take Matt Doyle seriously anymore? I see to like reading his stuff, but he’s too much of a company man these days.
    Does Berhalter opt for “stability” or take a chance on better, in-form players? Something tells me arriola, lletget, Roldan and Acosta are locks. I think Gyasi makes it as well. Of those only Acosta should realistically make it, and he should not start.
    Really hoping they don’t take a weak approach against Mexico. Is there a limit on players who can be called in?

  3. It’s amazing how in so many of these CCL ties the Mexican teams seem to have the ability to go behind and still score goals at will when they apply themselves. If I were a bettin’ fella, I’d put the money on Cruz Azul.
