D.C. United vs. New York Red Bulls

A sumptuous spring day in the nation’s capital and a glorious evening for football at RFK Stadium.

Perhaps a few goals from the home club?

D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls collide for the 61st time in league play and 73rd occasion overall. United holds an 18-9-4 advantage in regular season clashes in Washington.

My print-online story addresses United’s attacking and scoring issues heading into two home matches against Eastern Conference foes. DCU has scored multiple goals in a match just once in the past 15 games — the playoff-clinching victory over Columbus last October.

Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET.

TV: No standard coverage, meaning the Direct Kick and MLS Live pay packages are not blacked out in the Washington area. MSG2 will provide coverage in the New York area.

Radio: On college night, the club is allowing the George Washington University student station to carry the match live (wrgwsports.com).

Referee: Jair Marrufo.

The Capital Weather Gang has the game-time weather forecast.
