Colorado Rapids vs. D.C. United TV schedule, streaming, projected lineup, prediction and live thread

Ned Dishman

Join our Sunday night gamethread for los Capitalinos trip to the Denver suburbs and find out all the information you'll need to watch as United try to rebound from their latest loss against the Rapids.

Get your bingo cards out, sports fans: It's time for another D.C. United game. Tonight, the Black-and-Red are in the Denver suburbs to face the Colorado Rapids. United will try to find a way to get a result against a Rapids side that is surging, having scored six goals in their last two games, both wins against Eastern Conference teams currently in the playoff positions. As ChestRockwell broke down in his scouting report, the mile high club can attack with speed and can hoard possession, and the altitude will, of course, play a factor as United plays its fifth match in the last 16 days. All of which should add up to a long night for los Capitalinos.

So do have those bingo cards ready.

Time: 9:30 pm EDT

Venue: Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, Colo.

TV/Streaming: The usual - Comcast SportsNet in the D.C. region, and MLS Live around the world

Projected D.C. Lineup: With Nick DeLeon and Dwayne De Rosario both out with injuries tonight, there are some holes to fill - the question is whether Ben Olsen can fill those spots on the field without resorting to less impressive pieces like James Riley and Sainey Nyassi. Bill Hamid is off with the U.S. Men's National Team readying for the Gold Cup, which kicks off tonight; so Joe Willis will start in goal for United. On the back line, look for Chris Korb, Ethan White, Daniel Woolard and Alain Rochat to start. John Thorrington should return to the central midfield alongside Perry Kitchen, with Kyle Porter and one of Taylor Kemp or Nyassi on the wings. Up top, Chris Pontius will start at forward, partnering one of Casey Townsend, Carlos Ruiz or Lionard Pajoy.

Prediction: Call me optimistic, but I think United will find a way to score in this one. It won't be enough, though, as the fatigue and altitude get to the visitors. Colorado wins 3-1.

What Are You Drinking?: It feels like a martini night tonight, so I'll have some Green Hat gin, some Dolin vermouth and a twist.

This is your place for pre-game, in-game and post-game commentary. And bingo. Don't forget the bingo.
