Season Record: 6-8-9 (27 points)
Nice! Your D.C. United took it to Portland last Saturday, winning 2-0, for a much needed win. Those three points landed them in 6th place in the Eastern Conference, just a point clear for a playoff spot.
This Sunday, August 21st the United battle the New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls are in 2nd place (36 pts) in the Eastern Conference, also winning on Saturday, so this is the team the United needs to get points from. Your D.C. United beat New York 2-0 the first time they played. They play a third and final time in NY on September 11th.
Unfortunately, I think this one turns into a draw.

Audacious Assertion: United 2, Red Bulls 2
