Columbus Crew 2, D.C. United 1

D.C. United is in a tight spot now.

What’s it going to take to secure passage to the MLS playoffs?

“I don’t know what we have to win,” Ben Olsen said. “Do I think we have to win some games to make the playoffs? Yeah.”


Despite two away losses this past week, United remains two points out of a wild-card slot, with a match in hand.

My match report with quotes is available here.

DCU’s calendar:

Oct. 12, at Vancouver

Oct. 15, home vs. Chicago

Oct. 19, home vs. Portland

Oct. 22, home vs. Kansas City
