Oh, did you think the Black-and-Red might win tonight? Lol.

D.C. United are about to head off on a five-game road trip—but before they do that, they have to face Atlanta United FC at RFK Stadium tonight. The Black-and-Red played—and even beat—Atlanta back in April, but it's a different night, a different game, and we're thinking a different result.

It's a battle of the black and red teams!

So, it's still a little bonkers to me that Atlanta has an MLS team, because I grew up there and MLS never seemed like it was really in the cards. And now Atlanta is actually doing pretty well in its first season, while DCU has started 2017 a little bit on the struggle bus.
