As Columbus Crew SC gets set to leave the Gold Cup break behind and dive into the second-half of the MLS season, it begins with a home-and-home matchup with Eastern Conference foe Philadelphia Union.
The Union are in a similar position to the Black & Gold — below the red playoff line and battling to change those fortunes.

Columbus will host on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at MAPFRE Stadium, before the matchup moves to Philadelphia on Wednesday for a midweek 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
Kris Landis was predisposed this week, so the Massive Matchday Podcast features Nathaniel Marhefka and Josh Mlot as they talk about the matchup with Philly.
