DC united are yet to score a goal in the new MLS season. They will have a great opportunity to break the ice this Saturday when they host Columbus Crew at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.
The hosts enjoyed a very solid campaign in the regular part of the season in the last term of the competition. However, they were stopped at the first obstacle in the knockout stage losing 2-4 on the home court to Montreal Impact.
Ben Olsen did have a pretty tough schedule at the start of the competition facing Sporting KC and New York City in two opening rounds.
Columbus Crew had huge troubles with the defensive line throughout the whole season last year.
The problems are present in the new campaign as well since the team conceded four goals in openers with Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo.

The clash with Columbus will be the perfect opportunity for the hosts to finally score a goal in the new season.
