Philadelphia Union deals FC Cincinnati 10th straight loss

CHESTER, Pa. – Perhaps the best thing to result from FC Cincinnati's match against Philadelphia Union was that its conclusion meant just one game remains in the 2021 season for Cincinnati. 

Cincinnati, which was officially eliminated from playoff contention more than a month ago and condemned to a third consecutive last place finish in MLS on Wednesday, lost to Philadelphia, 2-0, Sunday at Subaru Park.

The loss brought with it a litany of negative implications for a club attempting to claw back something positive for its players and fans before the final whistle of the campaign

The loss dropped Cincinnati to 4-21-8 – one defeat shy of matching the 22 it lost in its 2019 expansion season. 

It was also FCC's 11th consecutive loss. 

The Philadelphia goals scored by Daniel Gazdag in the 11th minute and Paxten Aaronson in the 53rd minute also made it 72 goals conceded on the year for Cincinnati. That's just three shy of the league-worst single season record of 75 FCC posted in 2019.
