United Grab Lead
Benny Olsen hit the mark in the 23rd minute to give DC United a 1-0 half time lead over CD Guadalajara (Chivas) in a Copa Sudamericana tie at RFK Stadium. However, Marc Burch has been sent off just before halftime. It is absolutely critical for DC United to win this first leg at home to stand a chance of advancing. The game will be shown on Fox Soccer at 11:30 pm ET on tape delay.
