Season Record: 5-8-9 (24 points)
From defeat to draw! Your D.C. United scored a thrilling goal in stoppage time last Saturday (8/6) and salvaged a point against the Philadelphia Union.
Two home games. Two draws. Two points. Not what the doctor ordered, but any points are needed at this stage. The United remain in eighth place, two points removed from a playoff spot.
Next up, on Saturday, August 13th the United take on the Portland Timbers. Portland (32 pts) is in sixth place in the Western Conference, coming off a 3-0 win on Sunday.
I have a good feeling the United will get it done this weekend. Victory is beckoning.

Audacious Assertion: United 2, Timbers 1
(My home picks so far: 2-4) Note: Three of my ‘losses’ were because the United tied the game instead of won.
