Our prediction for this MLS match:
Bank of America Stadium will host Sunday’s MLS game between Charlotte and DC United, the two teams who are almost level on points in the MLS standings. Charlotte are eager to move closer to the playoffs places and you should know that they are eyeing their fifth home win of the process. All Brecht Dejaegere, Vinicius Mello, and Hamady Diop are out of contention through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The capital club, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with San Jose Earthquakes in their last league match. DC United, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Charlotte’s party at Bank of America Stadium. All Tyler Miller, Mohanad Jeahze, and Martin Rodriguez are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
