D.C. United welcomes Chivas USA to town in a battle of formerly terrible teams.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

D.C. United welcomes Chivas USA to RFK Stadium, in what could be the Goats last visit under this name. This game also pits two alike teams against each other, with both United and Chivas using a hard working style to get results. D.C. United has shown over the course of the season that this style works for them, while Chivas is riding a five game unbeaten streak that has pulled them out of the basement of the Western Conference. If you're not at the stadium, come watch this game with us!

Kickoff Time: 8:00 PM EDT

Venue: Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, Washington, DC

TV/Streaming: This game will be nationally broadcast on Univision Deportes and locally broadcast on Comcast SportsNet; therefore, MLS Live will be blacked out across the country. however, you should still be able to watch outside of the DMV, since UDN doesn't get national blackouts.

Projected D.C. United starting XI: There is no current reason to change the starters for D.C. United. MLS All-Star Bill Hamid will start in goal, with Sean Franklin, Bobby Boswell, Steve Birnbaum, and Chris Korb in front of him. Davy Arnaud and Perry Kitchen will be in central midfield, with Chris Rolfe and Nick DeLeon wide. Luis Silva and Eddie Johnson will be your forwards.

Match previews: As always, we have this week's episode of Filibuster, we have a discussion of D.C. United's lineup and substitution patterns, we have our Behind Enemy Lines chat with Alicia Rodriguez, and we our patented scouting report. There is also D.C. United's look and a look from our friends at The Goat Parade.

Prediction: While Chivas is on a hot streak right now, D.C. United is at home and they are playing well. Give me a 2-1 victory for the men in Black and Red.
