OUT: GK Stefan Frei (L lower leg); FW Danny Koevermans (L knee ACL tear); DF Ty Harden (lower abdominal strain); MF Torsten Frings (L hip); MF Matt Stinson (R quadriceps strain)

D.C. United (4-4-2): Hamid; Najar, McDonald, Jakovic, Korb; DeLeon, Kitchen, Saragosa, Pontius; Pajoy, M. Santos.

  • Chris Pontius scored his team-leading 12th goal of the season to extend United’s undefeated streak to four games in their 1-1 draw at Portland to start a two-game road swing.
  • United have won on their last three visits to BMO Field. In seven games all-time in Toronto, D.C. has won five.
  • This is the third meeting of the year for theses teams. D.C. United won twice in the space of three weekends as Chris Pontius and Hamdi Salihi scored in a 2-0 win May 5 at BMO Field, then Dwayne De Rosario bagged two and Salihi netted again in a 3-1 triumph May 19 at RFK Stadium.
  • D.C. is currently fourth in the Eastern Conference, with 51 points from 31 games, and hasn't lost in four matches. Toronto is dead last in the East, with just 22 points from as many games. The Reds haven't won in seven games.
  • TFC has kept just three clean sheets this season, against Philadelphia on May 26, Montreal on June 27, and against New England on July 14.
