Sunday Major League Soccer action from Audi Field, as D.C. take on Union.

This clash sees fourth play seventh, as struggling Union visit Audi Field to face D.C..

D.C. United’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 27 points this season

Whilst D.C. need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Black-and-Red after losing against Atlanta United and New England Revolution would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

With an unfortunate D.C. that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Hernán Losada’s men form is worryingly poor. Black-and-Red should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With 27 points, they are established in seventh in the League having won eight matches, drawn three meetings, and lost 10 fixtures.

Playing at home, D.C. have won six meetings and lost three games.

D.C. United will have 30 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Philadelphia Union’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 32 points, going into this game

Whilst a disappointing 1-1 draw against Montréal in their last game, is not the worst result they could have experienced, Union will be keen to improve the result in this fixture.

Slow and steady wins the race, Union are showing that they know by avoiding defeat in 15 of their last 18 meetings. With fourth, they currently sit 32 points in the League having won eight matches, drawn eight meetings, and lost five matches.

Union’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to D.C. In the 10 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won two fixtures, drawn five games, and lost three fixtures.

A win in this fixture, would take Philadelphia Union’s points from 32 to 35, so far this season.
