The Union will look to clinch the second Major League Soccer playoff berth in the franchise's seven-year history when they host Orlando City at 3 p.m. Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium.

A win in either of their final two regular-season games would earn the Union one of the six Eastern Conference playoff spots.

The top two teams in the conference will earn a bye and the remaining four will play a single-elimination, first-round game. The Union can't earn a first-round bye and the highest they can finish is fourth place.

In case of a tie, the first tiebreaker is total wins. The second is goal differential and the third is goals for, followed by fewest disciplinary points and away-goals differential.

Here is a look at the Union's competition for a playoff position, along with the first three tiebreaker categories.
