DC United team news and form: Benteke smashing it in MLS

Christian Benteke helped his team get a crucial 2-3 win against out-of-shape Atlanta. Coach Pineda’s boys were shell-shocked against their visitors, as Benteke was doing wonders in their penalty box. If DC United can get a surprise win over the Bulls on the 16th of May, perhaps the experts might start considering them one of the favorites for the MLS title this year.

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