Philadelphia Union Facing Health and Safety Absence for Eastern Conference Final

Now the number 2 of the East can be left behind several players for Sunday.

“Our players have worked tirelessly to get to this point,” said Curtin. “I know they will be brave even in the adversity we face. We have achieved great moments throughout the year. Be it international absences, the challenges of Concacaf, players losing loved ones. Adversity on and off the field, this group always finds a way to climb. We will make our fans proud.”

NYCFC won’t be at full strength either.

The Cityzens lost key players Anton Tinnerholm (achilles tendon rupture) and Keaton Parks (blood clot in leg) to injury before the playoffs started. Furthermore, the Golden Boot presented by Audi winner Taty Castellanos is suspended after he was shown a red card in the club’s win over New England on Tuesday.

“Castellanos is a great talent,” said Curtin. “He’s a striker you’d love to have on your team but hate to play against – I say that as the ultimate compliment. He’s a tireless worker, a big part of their success. get the red card at the end. But they have a lot of good options on their bench. They have strong attackers and an incredible coach, he has done a great job with this team.”
