D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union will tangle on Thursday at PPL Park.

D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union have an important match set for Thursday at PPL Park in the city of Brotherly Love.

The game means infinitely more to United in the standings, as they continue to try and fend off the Columbus Crew for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

D.C. is coming off of a nice 2-1 win over the hapless New England Revolution in which they had to come from behind in the final moments. Of course, United will have to step its collective game up after getting the news that Dwayne De Rosario is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

On the other side of the coin, times haven't been so kind to the Union. Philadelphia cannot seem to find the back of the net, netting just eight goals in as many games.
