How to watch DC United vs Real Salt Lake

It seemed that DC United was destined to go the entire month of August without a single win. Then, in the 11th hour (or really, the last day of the month), a 57th-minute Steve Birnbaum goal against New York City FC propelled the Red and Blacks to a 2-1 win, giving at least their unfortunate month. a silver lining.

Since earning the win over NYCFC, DC United drew 0-0 against Colorado on Sunday and now has just five games left in its 2022 campaign. They won’t make the playoffs; in fact, they have the worst record in MLS and right now they have their sights set on next season. But first, a home matchup against Real Salt Lake awaits them on Saturday.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the game on NBC Sports Washington.

D.C. United vs. Royal Salt Lake: what to see

It appears that, over the last 180 minutes of playing time, DC United have figured out, at least temporarily, a way to stop their poor defensive efforts on the field. Before the win over NYCFC, the Screaming Eagles had been outscored 11-2 in their previous four games. However, they have righted the ship of late, allowing only one goal in their last two games. Can they continue the streak on Saturday against Salt Lake?

It is an interesting question. Real Salt Lake, believe it or not, is one of only three MLS teams with even goal difference: 38 goals scored, 38 goals allowed. They sit sixth in the Western Conference, and with just six games left on their own regular-season roster, Real Salt Lake has far more value in Saturday’s outcome than its opponent.
