FC Cincinnati hit the road for the final time in 2021 to take on Philadelphia Union on Sunday, October 31. Kickoff from Subaru Park is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on Halloween Night.
Let’s break down this matchup, by the numbers.
The amount of goals conceded by Philadelphia Union at home this season, which is the fewest in Major League Soccer in 2021. The 0.63 goals against average in matches at Subaru Park is the best in the league, just better than the New York Red Bulls (11 home GA, 0.73 GAA).
The amount of starts FC Cincinnati midfielder Haris Medunjanin made as a member of Philadelphia Union, including playoffs, from 2017-19. He started all but one game in his 101 appearances with Philadelphia, where he scored five goals and assisted 30 goals, including earning one assist in the postseason.
Two friends, and former U.S. Men’s National Team teammates, Geoff Cameron and Alejandro Bedoya have been mainstays this season for FC Cincinnati and Philadelphia Union, respectively. The duo have combined for 275 career starts in Major League Soccer. On Wednesday, each player hit milestone starts, as Cameron made his 125th MLS start against Nashville SC and Bedoya made his 150th career start against Toronto FC.
Defender Jakob Glesnes has started and played in all 32 matches this season for Philadelphia, and he has not come off the pitch once. He has played all 2,880 minutes for the Union this year, one of six players across the league who have played that many minutes this season, which is the most in MLS.
