THE PREDICTION

The home team come into this on the back of back-to-back goalless draws against Philadelphia Union and Montreal Impact to kick off their MLS season. Their attention has been shifted due to their progression in the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals and they come into this game on the back of their second-leg in Mexico against Monterrey in midweek. They come up against a DC United side that have begun the campaign with a win against New York to be backed up by back-to-back defeats against New England Revolution and San Jose Earthquakes. Since that win against New York in which they only managed 38% of the ball, they have only scored one goal in two games. Given that, and Columbus’ goalless start all-round, under 2.5 goals seems a very likely ahead of this encounter.
