Union had chances against Nashville but match ends in scoreless draw

Chester, PA: We are at the point where we know what teams are heading to the MLS Cup Playoffs and your Philadelphia Union are one of those teams that will be playing in the postseason. On Saturday night, they battled Nashville SC from Subaru Park in Chester, PA. This was the Union regular season home finale.

How the game went:

In the first half, both Nashville & Philadelphia would have their chances to make big plays to take control of the game but both goalies were up for the test.

During the first half, the Sons of Ben would get the “Pay Kai Wagner” chants going as this could have been Kai Wagner’s final regular season home game with the Union.

The first half would end as it started with a 0-0 score. What could the Union do to make things more exciting for the fans that came out before heading into the playoffs?

The Union had a golden scoring chance on a corner kick in the 58th minute, but could not finish the opportunity.

The referee would step in and make a couple of questionable calls and the crowd at Subaru Park was not having it.

Late in the second half, the Union would have one final chance to get a goal. It would not happen, however, as this game would end in a 0-0 DRAW. With these result, the Union are now going into the final week of the regular season in third place in the east. Overall, this was not one of the better performances by the team – multiple shot attempts were blocked and they just could not finish.
