Columbus Crew vs DC United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Columbus Crew were able to register a 3-2 win over the New York Red Bulls to edge closer towards confirming their place in the top six of the Eastern conference. Jonathan Mensah’s early goal was cancelled out by Bradley Wright Phillips. However, Columbus were 3-1 up in the second half due to goals from Justin Meram and Joshua Williams. Even though a Gonzalo Veron penalty threatened a comeback from the Red Bulls, Columbus Crew held on for the win. DC United had a midweek game against New York Red Bulls which finished as a 3-3 draw. Goals from Tyler Adams (2) and Gonzalo Veron were cancelled by Zoltan Stieber, Patrick Mullins, and Fidel Escobar (OG). Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The record against Columbus Crew in recent matches is very poor for DC United, as the team has picked up just one win over this opponent in the last five. The solitary victory also came at home, as DC United have lost four out of the recent six visits to the MAPFRE stadium. Columbus Crew have won five of the six matches. Even though DC United have avoided defeat in two of the last three away games, I would go with a victory for Columbus Crew. Columbus Crew have scored over 2.5 goals in the twice in the last five home matches, but they are against a DC United team that has conceded more than 2.5 goals in four out of the last six away matches. Even in the midweek game, DC United conceded three goals against New York Red Bulls. I see tremendous value in backing Columbus Crew to score over 2.5 goals.

Columbus Crew win – 8/13

Columbus Crew to score over 2.5 goals – 13/8

Columbus Crew Preview

After an indifferent middle of part of the MLS 2017 campaign, Columbus Crew will be relatively pleased with a top six finish in the regular season. The club are now only three matches away from sealing a place in the play-offs. Columbus Crew have an eight point advantage over Montreal Impact with three games left. As a result, even a single point from the remaining three matches will be enough for Columbus Crew to reach the play-offs. Manager Gregg Berhalter may have to concede defeat in the possibility of finishing in the top two, as the club are eight points behind New York City with the three games left.

Columbus Crew Team News

Gaston Sauro (cruciate ligament), Ben Swanson (ankle), and Waylon Francis (hamstring) are the players unavailable for the injury.

DC United Preview

DC United remain bottom of the table and unable to get away from this position. The club has been occupying this place for much of the campaign. Recent games appeared to provide hope of moving away from this spot, as the club had picked up two wins in the last five games. Yet, Philadelphia Union are the closest team capable of taking DC United’s position, but even they are a substantial four points ahead with only three games remaining in the 2017 MLS regular season.

DC United Team News

Taylor Kemp (hip), Robert Vincent (meniscus), Patrick Nyarko (eye), and Chris Rolfe (concussion) continue to remain on the sidelines for DC United.
