Whenever New York and Philadelphia square off in any sport it always brings with it a bit of an edge. That is just the reality of when two teams from big cities a mere 90 minutes away play each other. In just their second year of existence, the Philadelphia Union are already creeping their way up the standings and with it, up the list of New York Red Bulls enemies.
