The Philadelphia Union played out a 0-0 draw against Inter Miami at Subaru Park.

In a match that offered little in the way of quality chances, the Union were held to a draw for the fifth consecutive match, but the point was good enough to keep them atop the Eastern Conference standings.

For the Herons, they have now gone winless in four straight and have not won in MLS play since April 24th.

Story of the game

In the third minute, Miami fashioned the game's first opportunity. Indiana Vassilev got behind the Philadelphia defense after Jack Elliott was dispossessed, but Andre Blake moved to his left to make the save.

Two minutes later, the Union had their first chance of the match. The ball bounced around the box, falling to the feet of Alejandro Bedoya, but he was denied by goalkeeper Drake Callender.

Daniel Gazdag turned his defender in the six-yard box and attempted to roof his shot into the tight angle presented to him. The chance was parried by Callender.

Jakob Glesnes was unlucky not to open the scoring for the hosts, his free-kick clattering off of the post. Gazdag was then denied by a Herons defender clearing theball off the line.

On 55 minutes, the hosts again should have been in front. A ball over the top to Sergio Santos on the left found Gazdag at the edge of the box. He fed Elliottwho barely missed.

Elliott was then denied from a free-kick and at the other end, he broke up a chance by the visitors on a cross off of a free-kick.

Over the last 15 minutes, Philadelphia struggled to break down the Miami defense, their best opportunity coming in the 78th minute when Stuart Findlay was set up by Wagner, but headed over.

Phialdelphia had one final chance in the 93rd minute as a header by Cory Burke fell to Callender.

Man of the match: Drake Callender

He made eight saves on the night and spearheaded a Miami defense that shut out Philadelphia for the first time since September 25th, 2021.
