Ah the irony. How coincidental that the trade to send Alain Rochat closer to the Oval Office would send the whole tem with him, to battle with the worst team in the MLS. You could say we should expect 3 points in the bank, but I don't think it will be that easy. D.C. is starting to hit its full stride, coming off it's only second win this season, as well as having a solid run in the U.S. Open cup. I'm obviously not saying we don't have what it takes to beat D.C. (which we do), but I am saying I wouldn't waltz into RFK stadium, expecting an easy game. It wil be tough. Here's my Predicted Starting XI
Knighton, Harvey, Mitchell, Leveron, Reo-C, Davidson, Koffie, Watson, Teibert, Camilo, Miller
1-0 for the Caps
Although the score may be misleading, it will be an exciting game. Brad Knighton will show that he's not going down without a fight, by making countless saves to keep us in the game. The deadlock was broken by the man in from, Camilo, when he connects with Kenny Miller's low cross across the face of the goal. D.C. United will put up a fight against our make-due D-Fence, but the connection between Carlyle Mitchell and Johnny Leveron will be shown, just like Martin Rennie has advertised. Another road win for the Caps, however probably not as unexpected us the first.
Good Luck Caps!
