  • United got the better of Columbus last season over three matches. Columbus took the first game 1-0, but D.C. responded with 1-0 and 3-2 victories for an edge on the season.
  • Columbus has been whistled for offside just twice this season, fewer than any other MLS club.
  • D.C. is missing two players due to the international break: Dejan Jakovic is on duty with Canada, and Marcos Sanchez is with Panama.
  • Columbus is missing one player, but it's a big one. Jairo Arrieta, who has scored 10 goals in 21 games since arriving last season, is with the Costa Rica squad.
  • D.C. keeper Bill Hamid leads all MLS goalkeepers with 13 saves.
