DC United still employs Taxi Fuantas, so there’s that. He will not be available for this match like half the team so it will again be a creative lineup.
DC United are guaranteed a spot in the knockout stage. A win or a draw guarantees DC the top spot in the group. Pumas only advance with a victory.
United looked better in their match against CF Montréal, but have a quick turnaround to this game against Pumas, so might have tired legs. The Mexican team has a week’s rest and will be pushing hard for a win.
Pumas last played out a thriller against CF Montréal coming from a 2 goal deficit to earn a draw, though they lost the penalty shootout.
Game time: Saturday, July 29 at 8:30 p.m. ET at Audi Field and will be broadcast live on Univision and MLS Season Pass.
