The Philadelphia Union enter the second leg of their playoff series against the Houston Dynamo trailing by a goal after losing at home. Peter Nowak isn't taking a conservative approach and trying to win 1-0. Hell, he's not even trying to win 2-0. A 5-4 victory will do just nicely for the Union. They list their starting lineup as a 4-4-2, but are playing four strikers, a winger, and a holding midfielder. More likely than not, Sebastian Le Toux will move to the wing and Veljko Paunovic will move to the center of midfield, but who knows. The Dynamo's lineup is a bit more conventional. Here are the lineups.
Philadelphia Union Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Faryd Mondragon; Gabriel Farfan, Danny Califf, Carlos Valdes, Sheanon Williams; Michael Farfan, Brian Carroll, Veljko Paunovic, Sebastian Le Toux; Danny Mwanga, Jack McInerney
Kickoff is at 8:30 pm ET, 7:30 pm local time. The game can be seen on ESPN2 and ESPN3 in the USA, as well as ESPN Deportes in Spanish, TSN2 in Canada, and ESPN in the UK.
