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.

Saturday's game will start at 4:00 PM ET, and can be viewed on Direct Kick or streamed on MLS Live.
