D.C. United vs. Chivas USA

D.C. United’s response since Dwayne De Rosario’s knee inury serves as the theme of my preview. Chivas arrives with an eight-game winless streak and just 21 goals scored; San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski has 22.

United hasn’t lost at home since the season opener March 10, a club-record 14-game streak. With a victory over the Goats, DCU would draw level with the third-place New York Red Bulls at 50 points with four matches remaining apiece.

It’s been a good weekend for United thus far: Kansas City and New York settled for a point apiece against non-contenders, Columbus lost at Chicago, and Houston lost at Philadelphia this afternoon.

Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET.

TV: Comcast SportsNet (DC), Galavision.

Local announcers: Dave Johnson and John Harkes.
