The Black-and-Red need this win if they hope to be the topper of Group C. Going into the competition, they were thought to be the favorites. However, after the first round, they find themselves placed second, two points below the Revs.
The latter had managed a narrow win in their opener – and thus became the only team to secure three points in the first round of the Group Stage.
Considering how a huge majority of h2h encounters have turned out to be, along with the manner in which Ben Olsen’s men secured a 2-2 draw against Toronto – expect DC United to deliver a great performance this Saturday.
