It’s Game Day 28, and New York City FC are back at home in Red Bull Arena to host Wayne Rooney’s DC United.

This game was originally scheduled for April, but it was moved to accommodate the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal matchups between NYCFC and Seattle Sounders. New York City might have been knocked out of the tournament, but at least they got a midweek game in August at Red Bull Arena out of it.

NYCFC have dominated the head-to-head between the two clubs. Out of the 18 games played NYCFC have won 10, drawn three, and lost five. New York City have scored 34 goals and allowed 18 for a differential of +16.

• Player Availability: Keaton Parks is out after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot, and Alex Callens is out with an MCL injury.

• DC United are in last place in the Eastern Conference. and while they haven’t yet been eliminated from playoff contention it’s unlikely that they’ll make the postseason. Still, the club is finding new life under head coach Wayne Rooney, and came close to upsetting league-leading LAFC at home two weeks ago.
