Philadelphia Union end May schedule by hosting Portland Timbers

The Philadelphia Union play one of their two scheduled games against Western Conference opposition on Sunday at Subaru Park.

Jim Curtin's men welcome the Portland Timbers, who ousted them from the MLS is Back tournament last summer, in a clash of MLS Cup favorites.

The Union Pregame Show presented by DraftKings Sportsbook begins at 6:45 p.m. ET with Sean Brace and Joe Tansey. Dave Leno and Sebastien Le Toux will have the team radio call at 7:20. Brace, Tansey and Kevin Kinkead will be on the Union Postgame Show right after the final whistle.

The Union come into Sunday in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 11 points, but a win will put them in second place behind New York City FC ahead of a three-week break.

Portland also sits in sixth place in its conference. The Timbers have two fewer points and many more injury concerns than the Union.

Diego Chara, Sebastian Blanco, Andy Polo and Jeff Attinella are all listed as out for the Timbers, who have a total of nine players listed as out on the league's availability report.

The Union do not have any major injury issues outside of Ilsinho's work back from groin surgery. Jack De Vries is still listed as out in concussion protocol.

Even though the Timbers have a laundry list of injuries, Diego Valeri and Jeremy Ebobisse are still eligible for selection and both could cause danger to the Union's back four.

Jakob Glesnes is coming off his best performance of the season versus D.C. United and the Union are one of three MLS teams that have conceded five goals or fewer. Orlando City and the Seattle Sounders are the others.

After a full week off, the Union are not expected to make many changes to their starting XI. The only swap we may see is up top with Sergio Santos and Cory Burke, who have alternated roles alongside Kacper Przybylko.

Philadelphia sits at -139 on the money line. Portland is an underdog at +310. A draw also pays out at +310. The full odds for Sunday's match can be found on DraftKings Sportsbook.
