Conceding early for the fourth straight home game, United lose for the second time at RFK this season

Before Saturday night, in the last three home games, D.C. United had somehow managed to win three times, despite giving up four goals within the first ten minutes of those games. Comeback wins against the New England Revolution, the Philadelphia Union, and Real Salt Lake had papered over the early goals in each of those games.

Stop me if you've heard this before: D.C. United gives up two first half goals, including one in the opening moments of the game, but rally to match and surpass their foe, in this case Real Salt Lake, in what ultimately became a wild affair, defeating the Claret and Cobalt 6-4 in one that will be remembered for quite a bit.

The 6-4 win that D.C. United had over Real Salt Lake was crazy. It was drunk. It has been hydrating and drinking pickle juice since Saturday night, it got that drunk. Nevertheless, we are going to avoid showing two of the goals in question, in part because they're on the site already.

Opposition 11: How will Real Salt Lake line up tonight against D.C. United?

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

RSL has been very good going forward recently, but it looks like they'll be pretty vulnerable defensively tonight.

For the only time in 2015 - well, barring an MLS Cup pairing way down the road - D.C. United will face Real Salt Lake tonight. RSL is in an odd place at the moment: They've won two straight and have just one loss in their last five league games, but are also outside the playoff spots in the West and have a -4 goal difference on the season.

DC United's signing of Alvaro Saborio on Thursday from Real Salt Lake fills a glaring hole in the club's attacking front and bolsters their chances of repeating as Eastern Division champions with the chance to make a deep run into the postseason.

Here are the 10 things we learned from gameweek 24 of the MLS season:

1. Nat Borchers' emotional moment

Nat Borchers is the ultimate professional, a player with true gravitas and depth. He was a key cog in Jason Kreis' Real Salt Lake for many, many years, but this last offseason, RSL decided to dump Borchers to bring back Jamison Olave and pack as many Argentine players who can't dribble in a straight line into the team as possible.
