The field narrowed for Columbus Crew SC's next round opponent on Wednesday night and it won't be a replay of last year's matchup with the New England Revolution. D.C. United shook off a sluggish start against the Revs on Wednesday night to make it out of the knockout round.
D.C. looked lethargic, continuing a run of poor form, went down a goal early on a beautiful Juan Agudelo overhead kick. The Revolution kept United on the back foot and D.C. looked punchless until they snuck a goal just before halftime to tie it. They'd miss a controversial penalty before scoring the winner late in the second half to win 2-1.
Columbus will play the best remaining seed. D.C. United is the fourth seed. Toronto Fc and the Montreal Impact square off at 7:00 PM tonight. If the Impact win, they'll host Columbus on Sunday as the third seed. If Toronto knocks off the Impact, then Columbus goes to the nation's capital. The team (and fans) will know just after 9:00 pm on Thursday who they'll play in the semifinals.
