Outlook: Revolution: The Revolution should be disappointed for not being able score, let alone beat, DC United, who entered the game with the league's worst overall and defensive record. They extend their unbeaten run to six games in all competition, but they blew a perfect opportunity to go into a tie for the fifth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference...DC: DC will be relieved that their goalkeeper kept them in the game, but a draw is a meh result for a team deep in the basement of the Eastern Conference. Their focus now should be more to put on a good show than anything else, especially since their odds of making the playoffs are astronomically low.

FINAL: REVOLUTION 0, DC UNITED 0

90th minute- Farrell feeds Rowe, who fires a shot at goal that's knocked away by Hamid. 0-0.

88th minute- Nguyen shoots from just inside the box but Hamid knocks it away, diving right. 0-0.

70th minute- Former Revolution midfielder Sainey Nyassi replaces John Thorrington for DC.

65th minute- Chad Barrett on for Toja.

54th minute- Kelyn Rowe replaces Sene for the Revolution. 0-0.
