The Philadelphia Union travel down Interstate 95 as they take on Eastern Conference Rivals New York Red Bulls this afternoon at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET and will be aired nationally on ESPN.

The Union will on one of the best in team history as they face all-time scoring leader Sebastien Le Toux, who was traded to NYRB from the Vancouver Whitecaps two weeks ago. In his two years with the club, Le Toux, who scored 27 goals for the Union in 66 career appearances, has already made an impact for New York, scoring on his club debut against the Seattle Sounders.

Philadelphia lost a thrilling 3-2 game in their last match in May, despite playing with only 10 men for the entire second half. Lionard Pajoy recorded both goals for Philadelphia, while Kenny Cooper, Joel Lindpere and Markus Holgersson scored for New York.
