The MLS returns to the fold with a set of crucial playoffs this weekend as New York Red Bulls take on Philadelphia Union on Saturday. Both teams have been fairly impressive this season and have a point to prove going into this game.

New York Red Bulls are in seventh place in the MLS Eastern Conference standings and have recovered after a slow start to their campaign. The Red Bulls held Nashville SC to a 1-1 draw in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this match.

Philadelphia Union, on the other hand, are in second place in the league table at the moment and have been excellent this year. The Union played out a 1-1 draw against New York City FC earlier this month and will need to step up in this fixture.
