In-depth analysis of D.C. United's on-field form

Opposition 11: Toronto FC projected lineup

The Reds are missing plenty of players through injury, yet can still put a playoff-worthy team on the field tonight

Opposition 11: Sounders projected lineup

A perfect storm of injuries, age, and poor form has hit Seattle, though Nicolas Lodeiro’s return could be a huge boost

Opposition 11: North Carolina FC projected lineup

United’s Open Cup path starts against a team that isn’t quite satisfied with their start to the USL season

Opposition 11: LAFC projected lineup

LAFC’s defense and midfield are good enough, but it’s their attack that should really worry United today

Opposition 11: San Jose Earthquakes projected lineup

Facing their third game in a week, the Quakes’ starting 11 for tomorrow is a tough one to call

Opposition 11: Real Salt Lake projected lineup

RSL’s defense looks vulnerable, but their attack could give United fits

Opposition 11: Philadelphia Union projected lineup

2018 hasn’t gone well for Philly, but the Union always seem to bring their "A" game against United

Opposition 11: Columbus Crew projected lineup

United will see an improved version of the Crew this time around thanks to the return of Wil Trapp

Opposition 11: Sporting KC projected lineup

Kansas City’s new-look attack is working well enough these days to bail out a weirdly malfunctioning defense

Opposition 11: Columbus Crew projected lineup

Even without Wil Trapp and Zack Steffen, the Crew are an imposing foe for the Black-and-Red

Finding a way to contain Alberth Elis appears to be a big key to solving the Dynamo

Opposition 11: Atlanta United projected lineup

It turns out you do actually need a defensive midfielder

United starts the season off against a Lions side that’ll have to do without some big names

Opposition 11: Orlando City projected lineup

Despite plenty of talent, the pieces haven’t fit together for the Lions this season

Opposition 11: Atlanta projected lineup to face D.C. United

Despite a long break between games, don’t expect to see much in the way of change for Tata Martino’s side

Opposition 11: Rapids projected lineup to face D.C. United

With Pablo Mastroeni no longer in charge, we’re not sure what to expect from the Rapids

Opposition 11: Projected Minnesota United lineup

The Loons have more injuries right now than just about anyone in MLS

Opposition 11: Projected Seattle Sounders lineup

The Sounders are missing some major players, but their history against United is still daunting

Opposition 11: Projected FC Dallas lineup

Expect some major rotation for a Dallas team that is as deep as anyone in MLS

Opposition 11: Projected Montreal Impact lineup

Without Ignacio Piatti, where will IMFC turn for goals?

Opposition 11: Probable New England Revolution USOC lineup

Injuries and call-ups will make it very difficult for the Revs to put 18 players in uniform

D.C. United, Atlanta, and why pressure is MLS’s defining tactic

The Last Word dispels the idea that either team scored a fluky goal by dissecting the first two goals from Wednesday night

Opposition 11: Probable Atlanta United starting lineup

ATL brings a ton of attacking talent, but they’ve also got some defensive weaknesses

Opposition 11: Probable Toronto FC starting lineup

TFC is the best team in MLS right now, and United will probably be facing their best possible eleven

Kaka is out for the Lions, who may have to rotate after playing on Saturday

Opposition 11: Likely Vancouver Whitecaps starting 11

A suspension may lead to a midfield reshuffle for Carl Robinson

The Last Word: D.C. United’s latest loss was different, yet also more of the same

We were literally at a loss Saturday, and are figuratively at a loss today as the Black-and-Red’s struggles continue

Opposition 11: Likely Chicago Fire lineup

The Fire are on a roll, but fixture congestion might force them to test some unimpressive depth in the back
