Just 6 games into the 2017 campaign and the Union found themselves winless, and in last place in the East, 4 points behind the next team. This Saturday, the Union will look to get back on track with a home match against the team sitting in front of them in the standings, the Montreal Impact.
Union’s last week game against New York City FC play out very similar to the majority of their games so far. The Union started out strong for the first 30 minutes, creating chances but unable to finish any. Then around the 30 minute mark, NYCFC began to take dominance of the game. In the 50th minute, New York City went up one to nothing after great passing lead to Jack Harrison getting in behind the Union defense. David Villa put the cherry on top for New York with a chip over Andre Blake to put the visitors up 2-0 from 50 yards out.
Look for the lineup to be similar to the starting 11 from the New York City FC game last week. With Alberg playing in the #10 role and Bedoya playing the #8 role. Ray Gaddis could see his first action of the year if Jim Curtin decides to play him over the struggling Keegan Rosenberry. 4th round draft pick, Jack Elliott could see his 2nd straight start this season against the Impacts.
