Black and Red United at related • 0 views

It's important for United to note the distinction between an opponent being in last place and that opponent being the worst team out there. Montreal is the former, but they can't be called the latter.

One can be forgiven for not knowing much about what's been going on with the Montreal Impact of late.

By completely revamping their back line and most of the remaining eleven, save Perry Kitchen and Nick DeLeon, DC was able to rebuild in the course of one off season.

D.C. United vs. Chicago Fire MLS TV/streaming, lineup, previews, prediction and gamethread

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

A win or draw will clinch first place in the East for United, who will host a Chicago Fire team that has been looking at these final games as an extended preseason after a very disappointing 2014.

Clinching first place in the Eastern Conference requires just one more point from D.C. United, and it's a deceptively important achievement.
