|DID YOU KNOW?|
- D.C. United is riding a seven match unbeaten streak at RFK Stadium, having not lost at home since its season opener on March 10 against Sporting Kansas City. The streak is the longest of any club in the league this season.
- Saer Sene hit for his second two-goal game of the season in the Revolution’s 2-2 draw with Houston. Sene has four goals in the last four games.
- With his two goals against Toronto FC, Dwayne De Rosario now has five goals this year – all in the last six games. In 32 games since coming to D.C. United, De Rosario has 18 goals and 14 assists and is two goals shy from 100 regular season goals, which would make him only the seventh MLS player to achieve this feat.
- New England is undefeated in its last three home matches, but has lost its last three away games.
- Dwayne De Rosario's seven assists lead Major League Soccer.
