Alberg.

The Chicago Fire kicked in four goals in this seven goal affair against the Philadelphia Union. But it was the Union who walked away home winners once again. The Union gained a big three points and remain undefeated at home through 8 matches at Talen Energy Stadium (6-0-2). It is easy to be excited about this result, and Roland Alberg stole the show with his hat trick and forcing of the own goal, but the defense is starting to lose the luster it had before the Copa break.

CHESTER, Pa. The LA Galaxy were pleased to end the night with a result on the road, but they were also frustrated about it not being a win given the circumstances.

The Galaxy played the Philadelphia Union to a 2-2 draw inside of Talen Energy Stadium on Wednesday night, but the point the Western Conference club picked up was not all that savory.
