Morning everyone. Yesterday, we had a ton of soccer, from Champions League to Copa Libertadores to Loudoun United. Also, #DCSports happened last night as the Washington Nationals won their wild card game. This means that Game 3 of the NLDS will occur at Nationals Park on Sunday, the same day as D.C. United’s final regular season match against FC Cincinnati. Make sure you get down to Audi Field early. Bummer that the Washington Mystics lost Game 2 of the WNBA Finals last night, but the series is tied 1-1. Let’s hope that Elena Della Donne is okay.
Serge Gnabry became the first player ever to score 4 goals in the second half of a Champions League match as Bayern smoked Spurs, 7-2.
El Superclasico was back in the Copa Libertadores semifinal. River Plate beat Boca Juniors 2-0 in the first leg at home.
New York City FC might have a problem if the New York Yankees advance far in the MLB Playoffs. They released a plan where they could play at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, if necessary when they host the winner of the 4/5 matchup later this month.
So, I’m going to go ahead and say it: CONCACAF Nations League is the greatest. soccer. competition. in. the. world. I can’t wait for the match at Audi Field next week for the United States Men’s National Team to get started. Jurgen is wrong, but he’s also just fueling the snarky, pessimistic fans that never have anything good to say about the MNT.
Finally, a word from Russell Canouse on his drive to help tackle hunger:
All DCU fans, please come help me tackle hunger awareness in our community this Sunday at our last home game. My Real Estate family will be collecting non perishable items at Gate A from 2-4pm. First 200 fans will receive an autographed picture from me! Thank you! #RSC4 #BeElite pic.twitter.com/M4G9pwVE4O— Russell Canouse (@RussellCanouse) October 1, 2019
