Columbus Crew vs DC United
USA – MLS
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 22:00 UK
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).
Columbus Crew and DC United will face each other in the 4th round of MLS on Saturday evening. the hosts are looking to extend their unbeatable streak while the away side is searching for the first win of the season.
Home side opened the campaign pretty confidently with an away victory over defending champions Toronto. They’ve booked seven points in three rounds which is a very good result taking into consideration that they played at away grounds twice. Gyasi Zardes started the season very efficiently with three goals in the same number of matches. Columbus Crew’s defence allowed only two goals so far and their defending is at fairly high level. Last time, they lost the two-leg clash for the title, but it seems that they are going to challenge it once more, so we should consider them as strong contenders.
DC United started the season with two draws and a defeat against Atlanta United. They want to forget their last campaign as they were one of the worst teams in the league. In this one, they are still searching for a win and although Ben Olsen’s side is not bad in front of the oppositions’ goal, they need to improve their defending work as soon as possible. Their away performances last season were really bad and they managed to celebrate only three wins when playing away from home. The visitors need to start winning points in front of oppositions’ crowd if they want to have a decent season.
Columbus Crew vs DC United: Head-to-head
Columbus Crew celebrated in the last two occasions, and generally they were much more successful in their recent head to head matches. In four matches out of the last five, one of the sides was able to keep the clean sheet.

Since DC United have been involved in high scoring matches from the start of the season, we might see at least three goals in this one.
