The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Columbus Crew win

Columbus Crew have not been able to get a victory in the opening two games of the MLS season. However, they are up against a DC United outfit who have frequently struggled in the away games. DC United won three consecutive games against Columbus Crew but this match might bring in the first reversal.

Total goals under 2.5

Columbus Crew shipped three goals in the game against Monterrey. This CONCACAF Champions League match has been preceded by goalless draws for Columbus Crew in the two games of the season. DC United are also unlikely to be defensively strong, but the Crew may not be able to profit from the same.

Gyasi Zardes to score anytime

Zardes was trying to get on the end of many chances in recent matches. The striker, along with Columbus Crew, are yet to open the account for the season. This might change against a DC United outfit which has just conceded four goals in the last away match. Incredibly, Zardes has never scored against DC United even after many attempts but this match might bring his first goal against the club.

Columbus Crew vs DC United: Match Preview + Prediction

Columbus Crew

As the MLS Cup holders, Columbus Crew cannot be taken lightly in any game. The start of the season has not been good, as the Crew have been involved in some disappointing stalemates. It is also a worry that the defenders have been guilty of making too many individual errors. At the same time, Caleb Porter’s men should be able to overcome the absence of players like Aidan Morris, Kevin Molino, Marlon Hairston, and Perry Kitchen.

DC United

DC United have been poor in the matches for a long time. The trend does not seem to have changed even for the 2021 season since the team has suffered some bad away defeats – most recently with the loss against San Jose. Another away match would not have been on the wish list of manager Hernán Losada. Bill Hamid, Jose Reyna, Kevin Paredes, Michael DeShields, Paul Arriola, and Chris Odoi-Atsem are the players unavailable for DC United.
