Toronto FC (0-8-0) comes into RFK Stadium on Saturday night to face off against D.C. United (6-4-3), a club that has won three consecutive Major League Soccer matches. DCU defeated the Colorado Rapids by a final score of 2-0 in their last match Wednesday, and now sit just one point behind the New York Red Bulls for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
TFC, who set a league record to start the season with eight consecutive losses, was able to scratch out a 1-1 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps in the first leg of the Canadian Cup Championship on Wednesday. During non-league play, Toronto has notched two wins and three draws against Major League Soccer competition and hope to carry that momentum back into league play against DCU, whom they faced in their last MLS match earlier this month.
Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m. and tonight's game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.
