D.C. United will try to stop the hot Montreal Impact and stay in the playoff picture.
D.C. United travels to Montreal to take on the Impact on Saturday. The game could have major playoff implications, as a Montreal win would pull the team to within one point of the final Eastern playoff spot, currently occupied by D.C.
When the teams last met in June, United cruised to a 3-0 victory, but Montreal was in the midst of a busy eight-day stretch in which it played three games. This time, the Impact are coming off a week's rest, while D.C. is playing its third game in seven days.
United will be trying to snap a four-game road losing streak. A fifth road loss would tie D.C.'s worst road string since 2008.
The Impact have been red-hot of late, winning four in a row by a combined score of 9-2.
