MLS Eastern Conference Final: How to watch Philadelphia Union vs. NYCFC

Winning the Eastern Conference Final translates into earning a spot in the MLS Cup Final against the Portland Timbers. New York City FC visits Subaru Park on Sunday to challenge the Philadelphia Union in the conference final.

The Philadelphia Union is coming off a pair of rocky MLS playoffs games against New York Red Bulls and Nashville SC. A 123rd minute long shot from center back Jacob Glesnes secured a win against NY Red Bulls and goalkeeper Andre Blake's penalty-stopping ability kept Nashville from scoring a single goal in a penalty shootout after a well-fought 1-1 draw. Jim Curtin's Philadelphia Union has fought hard to get to this stage and will look to take advantage of NYCFC's big absence.

New York defeated a mighty Atlanta United side 2-0 in the first round of playoffs. Next, the Boys in Blue took down Community Shield winners New England in the Eastern Conference semifinals. 

New York's Santiago Rodriguez and New England's Adam Buksa scored within the first five minutes. The score was 1-1 after 90 minutes. Regular season top goalscorer Valentin Castellanos proceeded to score a go-ahead goal early in the second half of extra time. However, he was sent off for a second yellow card shortly after scoring. As a result, Canadian youngster Tajon Buchanan equalized with two minutes left of play. Like Blake and Philadelphia, goalkeeper Sean Johnson stared in goal during the shootout to help New York win.

The question in place is, can a Castellanos-less NYCFC side beat a sturdy Philadelphia Union crunched-out results in the first and second rounds of playoffs?
