GameThread: Colorado Rapids at DC United

New, 7 comments

DC United is undefeated in their last 11 games against the Rapids at RFK, and look to continue their ascent back up to MLS's middle class tonight.  It won't be easy against a Colorado side that is built around hard working players like Conor Casey, Pablo Mastroeni, and Jeff Larentowicz..  The Rapids are coming off two straight 1-0 losses.

Game time: 7:30pm EST

Television: Comcast SportsNet

Stadium Info: Get your tickets at the RFK box office.  Pregame festivities include a concert from Poor But Sexy and of course the legendary Barra Brava and Screaming Eagles tailgates. 

Projected Starting Lineup:

    Hamid    
James Pena   Talley Wallace
  Simms   Morsink  
Khumalo       Castillo
  Cristman   Allsopp  
 

Last minute thoughts:  We've been told not to expect many changes to the DC lineup that earned three points in two matches last week.  This could be troubling as United is likely to be outmatched by the more talented Rapids in the midfield and striker positions.  Juan Manuel Pena and Carey Talley could be facing their toughest challenge of the year in Conor Casey and Omar Cummings.  But if United can generate some opportunities against Colorado's less than spectacular backline, and if Danny Allsopp and Adam Cristman can continue to get shots on target, this match could be about even.
