The match was a back-and-forth affair throughout the 90 minutes of regulation, with neither team able to break the deadlock despite having a few opportunities to take the lead.

Though, to be honest, neither Cincinnati nor the Union were as offensive as they ought to have been to secure a spot in the East final. Despite this, players like Aaron Boupendza, Lucho Acosta, and Brandon Vazquez had better opportunities that were thwarted by goalkeeper Andre Blake or the visiting defense.

For Cincinnati, Alvaro Barrel missed an opportunity when time ran out on a free kick, and Mikael Uhre had a clear cross in the Cincinnati area and a shot on goal. Nathan Harriel also had a chance, but Roman Celentano saved it effectively.

Yerson Mosquera took advantage of the best opportunity Cincinnati had all day in the heart of the Philadelphia area in extra time at 90+4′, sending a right-footed cross to Blake’s right post, where the goal eluded him.

The MLS Eastern Conference Final, which will determine the Eastern Conference winner, will pit FC Cincinnati against Columbus Crew on Saturday, December 2.
