D.C. United will play their fourth match in 10 days on Wednesday against the New York Red Bulls.
Currently sitting with a one-point lead in the race for the fifth and final playoff spot in the East, United are in the midst of a grueling stretch where the team will play five matches over the course of 13 days. United are currently 1-1-1 over that span and have two more matches remaining (including Wednesday night) prior to earning a two-week break.
With a win on Wednesday, the club can close out August with a winning record of 3-2-1 for the month.
The Red Bulls will be entering the game undefeated in their last three matches (2-0-1) and will have a chance to overtake Sporting Kansas City for the top spot in the East with a victory against United.
