Thursday morning sees title challengers Philadelphia Union face an away trip to the Eastern Conference's bottom side, DC United. Their hosts are enduring a rough run of results – winless in eight MLS matches – and the odds will again be stacked against them here.

Can they spring a surprise against a side who are just three points off leaders Toronto? Or will their visitors prove too strong to overcome, as many others have already done this term? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

DC United vs Philadelphia Union Betting Tips

Álvaro Medran had a pair of first-half assists for Chicago Fire during their 2-1 win over DC United on October 12, which shouldn't be surprising. The Spanish midfielder, 26, graduated from Real Madrid's academy ranks before joining Valencia four years ago.

This month marks a year since he departed home comforts for the US on a free transfer and he's been quietly impressive with a European return at some stage a real possibility.

Yet, DC United shouldn't have lost. They had more possession (53%), passes (364, 78%), shots (14, six on target) and won more tackles (24) over 90 minutes but were ultimately second best.

Head coach Ben Olsen, in charge for a decade, is enduring the worst run of form since mid-2017, where they lost seven of nine consecutive MLS matches at one point. It's likely he'll shuffle the pack ahead of this clash, against a determined Philadelphia Union side who would be top of the East, if not for a 2-1 defeat by Toronto on October 4.

They've recorded successive wins since then, with Brazilian midfielder Ilsinho at his creative best with two assists against Impact Montreal last time out. He limped off injured midway through the second-half, so watch how Jim Curtin rotates his starting eleven accordingly.

DC United vs Philadelphia Union Correct Score Predictions

In 19 H2H meetings, Union hold a sizable advantage (11 wins, six defeats, two draws).

When you delve deeper into the specifics, statistics don't give DC United a good chance of earning a result though. They've lost their last seven MLS meetings and this has goals written all over it.
