In their first stop on a three-match road trip, the Philadelphia Union (7-4-5) are in our nation's capitol to take on regional rival DC United (4-5-6). The Union look to gain a valuable road result and stay on top of the Eastern Conference, while DC attempts to create a little bit of separation between themselves and the clubs in the bottom half of the conference. Kickoff at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC is scheduled for just after 7:00 PM Eastern.
