MLS Preview: D.C. United - San Jose Earthquakes

San Jose is currently on a run of poor form, but that hardly compares with D.C.'s dire performance this season.

  • D.C. United is in last place in Major League Soccer. With six points, the Red and Black are the only team not to break double digits, and the only one yet to record multiple victories.
  • United has found more success in the U.S. Open Cup, qualifying for a quarterfinal meeting with the New England Revolution next week.
  • San Jose currently sits eighth out of nine in the Western Conference. The 'Quakes have won just one of their last six games in all competitions, including an ignominious 1-0 elimination from the U.S. Open Cup at the hands of the Charleston Battery.
  • San Jose forward Chris Wondolowski has taken 57 shots this season, more than any other player in the league.
  • The one meeting between these two sides last season was a barn-burner. On May 2, 2012, San Jose ran out 5-3 winners over D.C. at Buck Shaw Stadium. Wondolowski and Steven Lenhart each had two goals for the hosts. Dwayne De Rosario was the pick of the visiting players, grabbing a goal and two assists for United's cause.
