There is no score at halftime between one of MLS' founding clubs and its newest expansion team. D.C. United and the Montreal Impact have shown plenty of endeavor, but not a lot of finishing product as they struggle for chances on a damp, cool night at RFK Stadium.
Indeed, the offensive displays by both clubs have been so abject that neither team has managed a shot on target, while Montreal forward Sanna Nyassi, the greatest individual threat for either team, has been flagged for offside three times.
The fans at RFK observed a moment of silence during the 12th minute of play for longtime D.C. United fan Javier "Chico" Solares, a member of the club's Barra Brava tifo group who passed away Tuesday evening.
