  DID YOU KNOW?
  • United will have to play without Branko Boskovic and Emiliano Dudar, both of whom were shown red cards in the final minutes of D.C.'s 1-1 draw against Philadelphia.
  • These two teams currently occupy the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. Chicago is in fourth, with 41 points from 24 games. D.C. is four points back with a game in hand.
  • After challenging for the top spot in the East for much of the year, D.C. has slipped, posting a 2-4-1 record since ending a four-game winning streak in June.
  • Chicago's newest designated player, Sherjill MacDonald, has made an immediate impact since joining the Fire at the end of July, picking up a goal and an assist in just 212 minutes of play.
  • Chicago's Austin Berry leads all MLS rookies in minutes played, with 1620.
