A losing streak of four matches in a row have gripped the away team

Although DC United began the MLS season in brilliant form, they are currently in ninth place in the Eastern Conference after a poor run of matches. Last match they lost 1-4 to the New York Red Bulls and in the last game they were defeated by Inter Miami.

In the game against the Herons, they had the most shots but did not score the goals. Consistency has been a major issue for the team, as they have been unable to maintain momentum. 

Chicago Fire are going through a purple patch of form in the MLS, as they haven’t won in the last six matches. In those six matches, they have drawn one and lost five. The team appears to be losing confidence at the moment, so a win here could make all the difference.

The defence of Frank Klopas is weak this season, conceding 26 goals from 14 matches. They are currently 14th after collecting 10 points from their 12 opening matches.

Player to Watch

Christian Benteke (DC United) 

Christian Benteke has been a standout with the team this season, scoring 11 goals and providing an assist in 12 matches. He is the first player in the division to score two hat-tricks against New England and Atlanta United.

He will be looking to score again after failing to score in his last two matches. He has one of his biggest traits, which is his ability to dominate players and hold up play to make teammates more effective. With his clinical finishing and movements inside the box, he has become the team’s danger man. 

Hugo Cuypers (Chicago Fire)

The Belgium international has enjoyed a mixed start to the campaign having scored three goals from 14 matches. He has led the line well using his height and physicality to win aerial duels. While he is mainly a striker, he is equally adept at playing on the right.

His height makes him a threat inside the box as he can score goals from corners and free kicks. After two blank matches, he will be eager to get back on track.
