  DID YOU KNOW?
  • D.C. will be without the services of goalkeeper Bill Hamid, who is suspended for this match after receiving a red card in last week's 4-0 loss to the Houston Dynamo. Hamid has the best save percentage in MLS, and is the only goalkeeper who has saved more than 80 percent of shots faced.
  • Hamid won't be the only player missing out on the proceedings. The MLS disciplinary committee decided Columbus forward Emilio Renteria could use a game off.
  • The two teams split their two meetings last season, each winning at home. The Crew haven’t lost in Columbus to D.C. United since 2007, a span of four matches (3-0-1).
  • Costa Rican international Jairo Arrieta made his MLS debut for the Crew in their 2-0 home loss to Sporting KC, starting and playing 62 minutes.
  • D.C. United's Dwayne De Rosario leads all MLS players in assists with 12.
