Analysis and Prediction
Considering the form of both teams, this is very hard to predict as they are both winless for some time now. DC United however looks more likely to end the winless streak than Austin FC and if they can put in a very good performance, there’s no reason why they can’t beat Austin FC and move into the playoff zone.
Both teams are poor defensively and that should produce goals from at least one team. I bank on DC United to find the back of the net at least once irrespective of the final result.
