Match Thread: D.C. United vs New York City FC (05/18)


It's D.C. United Day, which means we get to watch our favorite team in action against New York City FC, or, if you're like me, you can follow along on social media because physically watching induces far too much personal emotion. Still, I can't argue that the best way to take in soccer is to watch it, so here's how.

Location: Audi Field (Washington, D.C.)

Time: 7:30 PM ET

Where to Watch: NBC Sports Washington, TeleXitos,, ESPN+

Referee: Chris Penso

League Form: D.C. United - D,W,L,W,L ; NYCFC - W,D,W,W,W

D.C. United finds themselves at home facing an opponent who have yet to win away this season. NYCFC are, however, in excellent form as their last 5 matches were all located somewhere within commuting distance for New Yorkers.

Key Player: I'm going to take the easy route here and say Taxi Fountas. How can you not? The man has been on an absolute rampage since joining D.C. United. Just take a look at these numbers:

If he keeps this up, I think we see a victory for the Black and Red... I think... I mean, surely not a loss... right?

Here's where I leave you as I know not how to give in-depth analyses on tactics and lineups. Feel free to contribute that yourself in the comments below!
