D.C. United enters this match with an overall record of 2-5-2, a 1-0-1 record at home and a 1-5-1 record on the road. D.C. United could use a feel good performance here after losing four of their last six matches. D.C. United finds itself dead last in the Eastern Conference due to inconsistent offense and a defense that’s allowed two or more goals in five times in nine matches. On the road this season, D.C. United is being outscored by 0.7 and as allowed three goals four different times. The good news for D.C. United is that help may be on the way soon, as the club and Everton star Wayne Rooney continue to discuss a possible deal. Darren Mattocks leads D.C. United with four goals, Luciano Acosta has five assists and Yamil Asad has 12 shots.
There’s no history between these two clubs.
D.C. United has been blitzed on the road defensively this season and there’s not much reason to think that’s going to change anytime soon. Los Angeles Football Club has proven to be one of the more offensive skilled teams within its conference and should get a lot of quality looks at the net in this game. D.C. United has played a ton on the road this season and has given u seven goals in its last three matches. Tired legs may be starting to become a factor.
I’ll take the over three goals.
