- This is the back end of a home-and-home series between the teams over a five-day span, the first meetings ever between the clubs.
- Vincent Nogueira’s goal in stoppage time gave Union a 2-1 victory Saturday afternoon at PPL Park, their first victory of the season. A deflection of an Eric Ayuk Mbu shot that hit Zach Pfeffer before rolling into the goal sent Union on their way.
- David Villa scored his second MLS goal in bringing NYCFC level in the second half. The tally was the club’s first since March 15, ending a 241-minute goalless drought.
- New York City FC saw their winless streak extended to three matches in the defeat in Chester, their second consecutive loss.
