Players to Watch

Julián Carranza (Philadelphia Union) – With four goals in five MLS matches and four goals in three Concacaf Champions Cup appearances, Carranza has played a large part in Philadelphia’s strong start. His scoring ability has been on full display so far for the club. Keeping him off the scoresheet would pay dividends for the 5-Stripes.

Noah Cobb (Atlanta United) – After the injury to Gregersen, homegrown Noah Cobb stepped up in a big way. This season, he only has three games with the first team under his belt, but it is clear his confidence is growing with each match. The backline will have to stand tall against Philadelphia’s direct playing style this Sunday.

“Now that I have played a few games – I got three in a row,” said Cobb to local media on Tuesday. “I think I am growing in confidence. I don’t know if try certain passes I wouldn’t try is the right word, but I am trusting my ability to pass between lines and pick a pass further up the field.”
