MLS Standings 2012: D.C. United Fourth In Eastern Conference Entering August

Three months are left to go in the MLS regular season and D.C. United (10-7-3, 33 points) stands in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Having lost four of their last six games, the United are now just five points up on the sixth place team in the conference and on the outside looking in on the MLS playoffs. The team lost both MLS matches in July, a 4-0 loss to the Houston Dynamo and a 1-0 loss to the Columbus Crew.

The team regained some momentum with a 1-1 draw against Paris Saint-Germain and hope that when their MLS schedule resumes that they can secure a spot in the MLS playoffs come the fall.

The team now enters a crucial August with six games on the schedule. The United start August with an opportunity to avenge that last loss to the Crew as they play Columbus on Aug. 4 at RFK Stadium. Later in August, the United will play four games in a 10-day span, a crucial stretch that will either make or break the United's season.
