DC United and New York Red Bulls square off in an MLS fixture at Audi Field with both teams separated by just one point in the Eastern Conference. An exciting contest looks to be on the cards and goals can be expected at both ends.

DC United played out a 2-2 draw at Chicago Fire last time out in the MLS. They showed great character to fight back from two goals down with Kevin Paredes getting their first goal before Ola Kamara grabbed the equaliser from the spot three minutes from time.

Things have not been particularly smooth for the Black and Reds in recent weeks with just one win in their last five matches. They are currently ninth on the table, just three points behind New York City FC in the final playoff spot.

Hernan Losada’s men often show their quality in attack and can count a 7-1 victory over Toronto FC among their recent results. However, defending remains a problem having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four matches.

New York Red Bulls also played out a draw in their previous MLS fixture as they were held 1-1 by Toronto FC. They opened the scoring just after the restart through Patryk Klimala but were pegged back midway through the second half.

The Red Bulls have also claimed just one win in their last five matches, which was a 2-1 victory away at Orlando City. They have played out three draws in that run and sit two points off the playoff places in the East.

One thing that has hampered Gerhard Struber’s team this season is a lack of discipline at the back which has seen them keep just one clean sheet in their last five matches.
