Toronto FC visit D.C. United, one of only ten original MLS teams in 1996, for the 41st encounter in the all-time series between the two clubs. Historically, TFC hold a 12W-17L-11T record through their first 40 regular season meetings with the Black-and-Red. The two clubs have previously faced off in Washington on 19 separate occasions, with the Reds holding a combined 4W-8L-7T record at Audi Field and RFK Stadium. TFC will be looking for their first road victory against the Black-and-Red since recording a 0-1 victory, courtesy of a Sebastian Giovinco goal after 57 seconds, at RFK Stadium on April 16, 2016. More recently, goals from Homegrown pair Deandre Kerr and Kosi Thompson lifted the Reds to a 2-1 victory over the visiting D.C. United at BMO Field on May 27, 2023.

Toronto FC enter Saturday’s match in the nation’s capital fresh from earning a valuable road point against Philadelphia Union on Wednesday evening. The two goalkeepers, Sean Johnson and Oliver Semmle, played key roles in the goalless draw at Subaru Park, with TFC’s Johnson making an important reflex save to deny Alejandro Bedoya in the second half while Union’s Semmle was on hand to deny Derrick Etienne Jr., Federico Bernardeschi and Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty the opening goal on the night. Unable to break the deadlock, the two Eastern Conference sides settled for a point apiece, marking the Reds’ first road point in Philadelphia since March 2019. The defensive performance marked the Reds’ sixth Major League Soccer clean sheet and their eighth clean sheet across all competitions of the 2024 campaign. Following the Matchday 17 encounter, TFC have now picked up results (seven wins and a tie) in eight of the club’s last 11 matches across all competitions since April 20.
