  • Toronto and D.C. are the two worst teams in the Eastern Conference and all of Major League Soccer right now, with eight and six points, respectively. They are the only teams yet to break the double-digit point barrier.
  • Despite poor regular season form, D.C. has found some success in the U.S. Open Cup. The red and black defeated the Philadelphia Union 3-1, courtesy of a Dwayne De Rosario hat trick, to advance to the quarterfinals.
  • D.C. United has not scored an MLS goal in its last 290 minutes of play.
  • Toronto's 1-1 draw against Philadelphia on June 1 ended a seven-match losing run in all competitions.
  • Toronto's Doneil Henry will miss this match through suspension.
