Takeaways from Union Loss to Toronto to start 2019 MLS Season

Chester PA: It is always exciting when a new season begins and that is what we had on Saturday afternoon as the Philadelphia Union took on Toronto FC from Talen Energy Stadium in Chester PA. This season is a very special one for the Philadelphia Union as it is their 10th season in MLS.




Here are my takeaways from the Philadelphia Union 3-1 loss to Toronto to start the 2019 MLS Season

The Sons of Ben were in full force and are very vocal whenever you attend a game at Talen Energy Stadium

Roster Changes for Union:
The Union made changes to the roster and some of them would make their debut for the Union

Michael Bradley Show:
Who would get the scoring started for the 2019 season, it would belong to Toronto FC Michael Bradley, Bradley has been one of the big names for US Maen’s national team. he would score in the first half during stoppage time and then in the 62nd minute

1st Goal for Broadley:

2nd Goal for Bradley:

What a Debut for Marco Fabián:
in the offseason, The Union would sign Mexican national star Marco Fabián. before the game, Fabian would receive a Thunder Ovation when he got Introduced and then would not disappoint the fans at Talen Energy Stadium, he would have some good scoring chances.

In the 73rd minute, he would score a Penalty Kick for his 1st goal with the Philadephia Union & also would be the Union 1st goal of 2019 season.

How the Goal sounded:

TSN in Toronto:


6ABC in Philadelphia:

Need to finish:
This is a repeat from last year that the Philadelphia Union would have some golden scoring chances and just could not finish and in the game against Toronto, there would be multiple times to score but they just could not connect on those opportunities.

The Union will look to get their first win of the 2019 season as they take on Sporting KC on March 10.
