Thierry Henry's Montreal Impact are in horrible form, having lost four of their last five games. In their last match, a solitary Daryl Dike goal left Monreal Impact licking their wounds in a 1-0 loss to Orlando City SC.
They will take on DC United in the regular season finale, who had a run of three straight wins halted in their last match, when they lost a crazy game 4-3 to the New England Revolution.
Two points separate DC United and Montreal Impact in the MLS Eastern Conference standings right now, with four places between the two sides.
With a win on Sunday, DC United will go a point above Montreal Impact, and potentially into contention to qualify for the playoffs.
DC United vs Montreal Impact Head-to-Head
There is a nice symmetry about the head-to-head record between these two teams in the previous 21 matches they have played. Almost as a tribute to the uncertainty of the sport, each result has happened seven times between these two teams.
