This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen D.C. United achieve 31 points

It was a 1-1 draw against New York Red Bulls in D.C.’s last Major League Soccer outing, Hernán Losada’s men will be hoping for a better result in this fixture.

They currently stand sixth in the League, with 31 points having won nine games, drawn four fixtures, and lost 10 matches.

D.C.’s home record is commendable, having won seven meetings and lost three meetings this season. This record should be most concerning for Chicago.

Victory for D.C. United would take their points tally to 34 so far this season.

Chicago’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to D.C. In the 9 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn one game, and lost seven games.

A win in this fixture, would take Chicago Fire’s points from 23 to 26, so far this season.
