Worth mentioning: The capitol team were eliminated in the 1/8 final stage of the play-offs by Columbus Crew on penalties after drawing in normal and extra time. Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney missed the first spot kick and after another two misses by his teammates the Crew won 2:3. DC United had three off-season games, where they recorded a narrow victory over Tampa Bay and two losses to Union and Impact.
Atlanta are last season champions in MLS after winning 2:0 in the final over Portland Timbers. Stiker Jozef Martinez was voted as last season’s MVP and also ended as a topscorer in the league with 31 goals in 34 outings. United already started the 2019 season with a two-legged 1/8 final in the Champions league against Herediano from Costa Rica. They managed to go through to the next stage, despite losing the first leg 3:1 away, but after an impressive 4:0 victory in front of their own crowd Atlanta marked the remarkable comeback. That continued the tendency from the end of last season when they recorded four losses in their last five games away from home.
