D.C. United hosts San Jose
After D.C. United played to a 3-3 draw in an exciting contest at Audi Field against the Chicago Fire, the Black and Red look to turn that momentum of earning one point into earning three points in front of a Saturday night crowd in D.C.
The District’s soccer team looks to keep their lead atop the Eastern Conference. They currently still occupy the spot with a 7-4-5 record with 26 points. With just one point separating them from the Philadelphia Union, D.C. United wants nothing more than to secure three points tonight.
San Jose will present an interesting challenge for the Black and Red. Always a threat to watch in the Western Conference, the Earthquakes got off to a poor start but have won three of their last five games. Those victories came over Toronto FC, Chicago, and brand new FC Cincinnati.
Keep an eye on Chris Wondolowski. Anybody that breaks Landon Donovan’s record is pretty good at soccer, and that is exactly what Wondolowski did, as he broke his all-time MLS goals record. If that does not impress you enough, he has scored six goals in his last two games.
In D.C. United’s 3-3 draw, the Black and Red got goals from Ulises Segura in the first half before adding two more in the second. Segura got his second goal of the game, and Luciano Acosta found the scoresheet as well.
This will be the first time these clubs meet this season and the first meeting between the clubs at Audi Field. Last May, D.C. United traveled to San Jose and left Cali with a 3-1 win. They also downed the Earthquakes with a 4-0 shutout at RFK Stadium the year before.
Kickoff is at 8 p.m. on FloFC.
