Matchday #4: D.C. United vs. Galaxy

Greetings from RFK Stadium, where D.C. United is expecting the largest turnout for a regular season match in three years. The presale was around 23,000, the parking lots were buzzing with activity and lines were beginning to form at the ticket windows two hours before the 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

There’s no standard TV coverage in the Washington area, so you’ll have to rely on the MLS cable/satellite pay package or online service. If you’re able to follow the match, we welcome your pregame, in-game and postgame observations in our comments section.

I’ll be back soon with DCU’s lineup and subs, as well as any Galaxy personnel news.

DCU LINEUP: Hamid; Korb, Jakovic, White, Burch; Quaranta, Simms, McCarty, Pontius; Wolff, Brettschneider. Subs: Davies, Ngwenya, Boskovic, Najar, Fred, Woolard, Onstad. (Kitchen is out with the flu.)

Galaxy star Landon Donovan, who was held out of practice the past week because of a knee ailment, did not travel with the team to Washington. It hasn’t been determined whether he will join the Galaxy in Toronto ahead of Wednesday’s match.
