Open Thread: Minnesota United vs Philadelphia Union

The Loons take on an Eastern Conference foe on Pride Night.

MLS: FC Cincinnati at Philadelphia Union
Philly’s mascots are really something...

Minnesota United hosts its annual Pride Night on Sunday against the Philadelphia Union.

The Loons (6-5-3, 5th in Western Conference) are undefeated at Allianz Field and will hope to keep it that way against the visiting Union (7-4-4, 3rd in Eastern Conference). Philadelphia is 2-2-2 on the road in 2019.

Minnesota’s only absences will be backup goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth and defender Carter Manley. Fullback Chase Gasper is questionable. Philadelphia’s injury report is all clear for the game.

The Loons will enjoy the return of standout right back Romain Metanire to the starting lineup. He was suspended for United’s midweek loss to Atlanta United due to yellow card accumulation, and will be departing soon for international duty with Madagascar.

Location: Allianz Field, St. Paul, MN

TV: Fox Sports North +
