Coming off a 1-1 draw in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain last Saturday, D.C. United (10-7-3) begins a stretch of seven games in less than a month with a home tilt against the Columbus Crew (8-7-4) at RFK Stadium on Saturday night. United is 7-1-2 at home this season.
After playing just five MLS matches in a two month period, United will now squeeze four home and three road contests into the next calendar month. The Black-and-Red will look to avenge a 1-0 loss to the Crew two weeks ago, in which Columbus' Chris Birchall tallied the game's only goal in the opening minute of the second half.
