MLS 2020 Champions Host Eastern Conference Rivals

This weekend, the 2020 MLS champions Columbus Crew SC host an Eastern Conference opponent in DC United. Here, we have got all of the details for both sides, including head to head results, team news & a betting tip for you to take advantage of for the clash on Saturday afternoon.

Columbus Crew SC

In contrast to their triumphant 2020 campaign, Columbus Crew find themselves with a bit of a disappointing start to the new season (for their high standards). As well as competing in the CONCACAF Champions League, Columbus have had an underwhelming start to the league, drawing their two opening games 0-0, against Philadelphia Union & CF Montreal respectively. On one hand, their defense has been strong enough to hold out their opponents on each occasion. On the other, however, struggling to find the back of the net is a worry for the defending champions. 

DC United

In the opening fixture of the season, DC United got off to a positive start, beating New York City FC 2-1 at home. However, in the next two games - both on the road - a 1-0 loss to New England Revolution before a 4-1 thumping from San Jose Earthquakes quickly put DC United on the backfoot. As well as that, DC United striker Erik Sorga is yet to find the scoresheet in any league game this season, and will definitely be looking to turn that around as Sorga and the team travel to Columbus, Ohio.

Head to Head

What may come to a surprise to many is that the previous encounters are very one-sided - but not in favour of the defending champions. In fact, it’s DC United that have come out on top in four of the last five matches between the two sides. On top of that, the other ended as a 1-1 draw, showing that DC United are undefeated in their last five against the hosts. It’s not a positive record for Columbus, and despite being crowned champions last year, still couldn’t beat their opponents. Are DC United the champions’ “bogey team”?

Statistical Highlights

Our dedicated soccer experts have collected all of the statistics and details around the upcoming fixture. Here, you’ll see the previous encounters between Columbus and DC, as well as their current form. All of this information has been put together just for you - make the most of it for your MLS betting!

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having considered all of the information and statistics put together by our dedicated soccer experts, an away win for DC United is on the cards - with some very generous odds to go with it!

DC United Claim Another Upset Win Over 2020 Champions

Everything we have seen from the statistics is that DC United hold a favourable record against the current champions. As well as that, the fairly disappointing start for the reigning champs has resulted in the pressure building for last season’s winners - something that DC United will look to take advantage of at the weekend. It would be considered an upset, taking into account the fact that Columbus are MLS champions, but DC United will be looking to rebound from their heavy loss in their last fixture.

According to the bookies, DC United are huge underdogs in terms of odds, but you can find Unibet odds at +500 for DC United to come away with the win.
