STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, on DAZN in Canada

After knocking off Atlanta United in their last game, the Philadelphia Union look to defeat another juggernaut in Los Angeles Football Club in what could be an MLS Cup preview Saturday night at Talen Energy Stadium.

The Union (15-8-6) rallied from a first-half deficit to defeat Atlanta United, 3-1, Aug. 31 in one of the club's biggest wins to date. The Five Stripes went in front late in the first half as Josef Martinez extended an MLS record to 13 consecutive games with a goal. But Brenden Aaronson leveled in the 61st minute and Kacper Przybylko and Sergio Santos scored two minutes apart late to secure the win for the Union, who are second in the East. 

A shorthanded LAFC (19-4-6) came back from a second-half deficit to earn a 2-2 draw at Orlando City SC Saturday night. Adrien Perez put the Supporters' Shield leaders the lead in the 12th minute, only to have Nani level a minute later. Benji Michel gave the Lions a 2-1 lead in the 20th minute before Diego Rossi equalized in the 78th minute.
