DC United 0 - 2 Seattle Sounders FC

DC United's last 6 home games had seen them with a record of L-W-L-W-L-W. With this game against the 2nd worst team in the Western Conference, who were on a three game losing streak themselves, there was a chance to break that streak.

United were missing Steve Birnbaum and Alvaro Saborio on international duty, with Chris Rolfe and Patrick Nyarko continuing to be absent due to concussions.
