The DC United look to snap a two-game skid and come away with points in four of their last six matched. The DC United have allowed just 20 goals in 22 matches and have pitched six shutouts. Bill Hamid has come away with 59 saves and has allowed one goal in his last three starts. Offensively, DC United has scored 24 goals overall and one goal in their last three matches. Chris Rolfe leads DC United with six goals, Fabian Espindola has five assists and Chris Pontius has 25 shot attempts. The DC United have had great success on their home field, which includes a 4-1-0 record during their last five matches at RFK Stadium.
These two teams have split the first two meetings this season, and both matches took place in May. DC United has won three of the last four meetings against Philadelphia and is 3-1-1 against the Union in the last five matches overall.
DC United hasn’t lost more than two straight games all season and has lost just five other games when you take away the two-game skid they’re on. This team also has been unstoppable on its home field. I look for DC to get back on track and pick up the three points here.
