Tomorrow the guys will take on the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park. We all know how poorly they play on the road, but tomorrow's game is a hugely important match up. Looking ahead to the remainder of the schedule (and we'll have more in depth analysis on this later next week) there are only three home games left and, after tomorrow's match, four very challenging away games at the New York Red Bulls, Vancouver Whitecaps (home opener!), D.C. United, and Real Salt Lake of which the latter two games take place within a few days.
So tomorrow's match in Philadelphia is a huge away game for the Timbers, especially concerning the recent for of the Union.
