D.C. United is postseason-bound, hoping to host first playoff match
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
D.C. United is back in the postseason for the third straight year. The questions now: who will they play and where will that first playoff game take place?
United finishes the regular season Sunday at Orlando City SC, a match you can watch on ABC7 starting at 4pm.
If United wins at Orlando, the Black-and-Red would host a playoff match next Wednesday or Thursday. A loss at Orlando, and United could start the playoffs on the road - depending on what Montreal does in its regular season finale.
Regardless of venue, D.C. United will play either Montreal or Philadelphia in a one-game 'win or go home' first-roundmatch, with the winner advancing to a home-and-away aggregate goal series next weekend.
I spoke with Head Coach Ben Olsen and Goalkeeper Bill Hamid following Tuesday's training session.
