Venue: Audi Field
DC United have won both of their opening two fixtures this new MLS season. They won 0-1 against Cincinnati away from home and won 3-0 over Charlotte at home in their first two league fixtures.
They will be hoping to make it three subsequent winning games when they play host to the travelling Chicago Fire in their next MLS fixture at Audi Field on Sunday.
Chicago Fire have managed to stay unbeaten in the opening two league fixtures this season. Both of them were disappointing goalless draws against Orlando City and Inter Miami.
