The Quakes take on DC United at RFK Stadium today at 12:00 Pacific (TV: Telefutura).
San Jose comes off two matches against the Rapids that were decided by stoppage-time penalties for Colorado, in each case rescuing a point for the Rocky Mountain side. DC comes off a mid-week CONCACAF Champions League win at home versus Marathon of Honduras 3-0. That score line may flatter the hosts a bit, though: due to the airport closures caused by political unrest in Honduras, Marathon had to endure a six-hour bus ride to Guatemala in order to fly to the U.S.
