D.C. United's loss to the Columbus Crew in the U.S. Open Cup semi-finals on Wednesday was essentially the end of our season. But the team still has plenty to play for, and we still have plenty of reasons to watch, as Chest outlined earlier this week. Finishing the season out of last place and avoiding the all-time worst goals record is the key now. United has the tools to do it. The question is whether they can all play well together at the same time.
Game time: 7:30 pm
Television: Fox Soccer Channel
Projected Starting Lineups: After using its full starting lineup on Wednesday night, United may choose to give a few starters some rest, especially those that have already played 210 minutes this week (Santino Quaranta, Stephen King, Dejan Jakovic). I doubt that the team will turn to Troy Perkins again this season (or ever?), but we could see some different forwards and midfielders in the mix.
