MLS Playoffs Schedule: Philadelphia Union Vs Houston Dynamo 2nd Leg Date & Time

CHESTER, PA - OCTOBER 30: Sebastien Le Toux #9 of the Philadelphia Union clears the ball away from the goal on a head ball by Calen Carr #3 of the Houston Dynamo during an MLS soccer playoff game, October 30, 2011 at PPL Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Chris Gardner/Getty Images)

The Union get set for the second leg of its Eastern Conference semifinal against Houston after dropping the first leg.

The Union lost its first-ever playoff game 2-1 to the Dynamo, a disappointing result for Philadelphia, which had never lost to the Houston in four matches. Philadelphia is now faced with the task of winning on the road against the Dynamo to overtake Houston on aggregate to move forward in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

The Eastern Conference Seminal series continues with the second leg on Nov. 3 at Robertson Stadium in Houston. The match is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.

With so much on the line, expect an aggressive game -- in attacking style and physicality. The matchup has already been chippy with six players receiving yellow cards during the first leg.

The Union will count on Sebastian Le Toux -- who scored Philadelphia's lone goal on Sunday -- and the offense to pressure Houston and create goal-scoring opportunities. The Union had chances against Houston in the first leg, but on Thursday they'll need to convert.
