Our prediction for this MLS match:
Audi Field will host Thursday’s football match between DC United and Columbus Crew. DC United aim to build on back-to-back wins over Cincinnati and Atlanta United, and a victory over Columbus will see them move a little closer to the playoffs berth. The capital club, though, have some injury concerns ahead of the midweek fixture as all Abu (coronavirus), Birnbaum (coronavirus), Arriola (injury), Felipe (injury), and Segura (injury) are all out of contention.
The Black and Gold, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Houston Dynamo. Columbus Crew are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Experienced defender Vito Wormgoor is sidelined through injury, and he is the only absentee in the away side. In their last meeting at Audi Field DC United outplayed Columbus Crew 3-1.
