With time running out on the regular season, the D.C. United will play one of their last three games on Saturday when the team travels to Toronto to take on Toronto FC at BMO Field for a game that could have a large impact on the playoffs race.
Saturday's game will be the third of the season between these two teams and United will be looking to go for the 3-0 regular season sweep. They will need to do it without arguably the team's top player in Dwayne De Rosario, who is out for the season with knee injury.
United currently stands at 51 points on the season, good for a three point lead over the Columbus Crew and a two point lead over the present No. 5 seed in the Houston Dynamo. A win would not only further increase United's playoffs chances, but could also help them move up in the conference, given how close all the teams are.
After Saturday, United will have just two games remaining in the regular season, one at home and one on the road. But first the team will have a week off to prepare for their final two regular season games.
