Almost three years. That’s how long ago we last saw a DC United win over Columbus Crew. Is coach Lesesne the right man for the job? According to his 0-0-1 record against the Crew, no, he is not.

Columbus Crew team news and form: Nancy’s team is on the right track

After winning the 2023 MLS title, you’d think that coach Nancy’s boys would want to defend their title. And you’d be right. Since the start of the 2023 campaign, Columbus Crew recorded three victories, two draws, and only one loss.

Predicted lineup: Schulte (GK), Yeboah, Amundsen, Cheberko, Moreira, Farsi, Zawadzki, Nagbe, Morris, Russell-Rowe & Rossi

DC United team news and form: DC bounced back

DC United managed to get a nice 1-0 win over Montreal last week. Coach Lesesne’s boys produced a massive 22 shots at target, but they did have only 43.0% ball possession. Which is a number they won’t enjoy against in-form Crew.

Predicted lineup: Bono (GK), Herrera, McVey, Bartlett, Antley, Klich, Peltola, Stroud, Ku-DiPietro, Dajome & Benteke

Player to watch: Diego Rossi

In the absence of Cucho Hernandez, it will be up to Diego Rossi to prove our Columbus Crew vs DC United predictions correct. The Uruguayan winger is still searching for his first goal with the Columbus Crew jersey, but we are convinced that the match versus DC United is a good opportunity for him to do so.

Rossi has the quality

Diego Rossi hasn’t scored any goals for his team so far this season. This is true. However, he did help teammates with two assists in the 2024 campaign.
