Sunday Major League Soccer action from BMO Field, as Phili take on Atlanta.

Phili, currently sitting thirteenth, host eighth placed Atlanta on Sunday.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Toronto FC have managed to gain 25 points

Following two straight wins for Phili in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Greg Vanney knows that a run of seven losses in 12 meetings for his Phili side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. Their position is thirteenth in the League, and they have 25 points having won six matches, drawn seven games, and lost 15 matches.

Playing at home, Phili have won four fixtures, drawn five meetings, and lost four fixtures.

A victory for Toronto FC would put them on 28 points.

Atlanta United go into this game with 39 points secured

This match sees Atlanta looking for a return to form, following a defeat in their last match against Montréal.

Atlanta keep finding ways to win, having secured eight victories in their last 11 matches is astonishing this season. With eighth, they currently sit 39 points in the League having won 10 meetings, drawn nine fixtures, and lost nine games.

Atlanta have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won two meetings, drawn six fixtures, and lost six matches of their 14 League matches on the road this season.

Atlanta United will have 42 points if they manage to secure a victory.
