COLUMBUS, Ohio — Andre Blake had six saves to help the Philadelphia Union to a 0-0 draw with the defending champion Columbus Crew on in the season opener for both teams.
Blake made a sprawling save in the 59th minute and diving stop in the 82nd for last season’s Supporters Shield winner.
Columbus had won three straight matches against the Union, including twice last season, both at home.
Philadelphia has won only two of its 16 visits to Columbus and is winless in its last seven there.
The Crew haven’t allowed a goal in their last four games dating back to the 2020 postseason.
