Matchnight #29: D.C. United at Union

Greetings from the shores of the mighty Delaware, D.C. United’s first-ever visit to PPL Park. It’s no Anacostia, but it’ll do. (Last year, DCU visited Philadelphia when the Union was still playing at Lincoln Financial Field.)

Coverage on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, begins at 8 p.m. ET.

United forward Charlie Davies didn’t travel with the club because of stomach flu. He is expected to return for Sunday’s trip to Columbus.

DCU: Hamid; Kitchen, White, McDonald, Burch; Najar, Simms, King, da Luz; De Rosario, Wolff.

Subs: Willis, Korb, Woolard, Morsink, Quaranta, Ngwenya, Brettschneider.

UNION: MacMath; G. Farfan, Califf, Valdes, Williams; M. Farfan, Carroll, Okugo, Torres; Paunovic, Le Toux.

Subs: Harrison, Nakazawa, Tait, Adu, McInerney, Mapp, Pfeffer.
