Defense to star in first ever conference semi-final matchup in Chester

The Philadelphia Union have a home playoff game on Sunday with a chance at their first ever trip to a conference final.

It’s a golden opportunity for the Union to add another chapter to what has been one of the best success stories in the league over the past few seasons and redefine the conversation about team building in Major League Soccer

A formidable opponent stands in their way, however, and Nashville SC are looking to make their first ever trip to a conference final in just their second season in MLS.

And the visitors are just as good of a success story as one of the best expansion teams in league history without the massive names and fancy stadiums.
