Chivas scoring troubles at home continues as they cannot find first home victory against Philadelphia Union

Freddy Adu of Philadelphia Union scores in the first half of the game and Chivas USA still cannot find a way to counter to tie the game. In the first half of the game which started out with great defense which helped they team win their last two games on the road. In the 40th minute with Adu in the right place at the right time with his back to the net the ball passes behind him allowing the heel kick to get passed Chivas Goalie Dan Kennedy who again played a strong game at goal.

In the second half of the game both teams continued to play strong defense but with little room and time to find the back of the net the intensity increased. The bright spot of the game was in the 63rd minute when we saw the return of Juan Pablo Angel who has been out due concussion symptoms suffered from the season opener in March. Angel coming into the game help bring the team some new spirit and energy as Angel created two scoring chance for Chivas but still fell short.

Then the red cards came out against the Union at the 75th minute against Keon Daniel for a challenge against Chivas Ryan Smith. Then two minutes later the Union receive another red card. This time it will be presented to Gabriel Farfan after a hard tackle to James Riley of Chivas. The goats with a two men advantage still cannot find a way to end the scoring woes at home. Union goalie Zac Macmath played strong at goal all evening deyning the goats to show they dominate road play at home finally in this 2012 season. Tonight was not meant to be with the score ending at 1 to 0 in favor of the visitors.

The Chivas get to come back to more comfortable domains as they try and continue their undefeated road record as they travel to Colorado as they will match up against the Rapids next Saturday.
