The benefit of the East’s No. 1 seed for DC United is knowing that the difficult task ahead of them for leg two against the New York Red Bulls will happen in Washington (Watch live at 230pm ET on NBC and online via Live Extra).
No two teams have faced off as often in the history of the MLS Cup Playoffs, and New York has a 2-0 lead heading into the second leg.
DC needs a three-goal win to advance in regulation, or a 2-0 win. An away goal for New York will go a long way in settling this discussion.
