Heating Up in Hotlanta
This weekend, our Black-and-Red heads down south to take on that other black-and-red team. You remember them: last season's splashy new expansion team...the one we beat three times.
As the second game of the 2018 season approaches, D.C. is coming off a road draw at Orlando in which a disappointing late goal cost them the win. Atlanta is looking for redemption after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the Houston Dynamo. This game should be fun to watch.
Will D.C.'s recently acquired midfielder Yamil Asad score for the second week in a row, this time against his old team? Will the return of from suspension of midfielder Luciano Acosta and Coach Ben Olsen boost the team to victory? We're hoping all of the above will be true!
Standing Up in U Street
