Philadelphia Union sports the best home record in Major League Soccer and has turned Subaru Park into a fortress. Over the past few seasons Head Coach Jim Curtin has stressed the importance of getting all three points at home and the club has delivered with eight straight wins in 2020. A win on Sunday would not only have them finish the season undefeated in the regular season at home but see the club lift the Supporters’ Shield.
Below are some key stats from the Union’s 2020 home campaign.
The Boys in Blue have scored 22 goals at Subaru Park for far in 2020. While LAFC leads the league in total goals at home in their home stadium with 27, the Union are head of the defending Supporters’ Shield winners with a 2.75 home goals per game.
It’s a team game
10 different Union players have DOOP’d the old onion bag at Subaru Park so far this season with second-year forward Sergio Santos leading the way with five goals thanks to his hat trick against Toronto FC. Kacper Przybylko (4), Anthony Fontana (3), Ilsinho (2), Brenden Aaronson (2) and Jamiro Monteiro have added multiple goals on their home turf.
The Friendly Forward
All eyes entering the season were on Kacper Przybylko and if he could follow up his scoring tear at similar levels to his 2019 campaign. Przybylko not only leads the team with eight goals and has four at Subaru Park but all six of his assists have come in Chester. The forward leads the team setting up goals at home with homegrown Brenden Aaronson close behind with four.
Keeping it Clean
Opposing offenses have had a rough go trying to score at Subaru Park with only four goals getting past the Union defense. The Boys in Blue have secured just as many clean sheets in 2020 at Subaru Park with four as well.
