There has never been any shred of doubt about Perry Kitchen. He arrived at D.C. United as a readymade professional. He’s been as durable as any player in the league over the last four seasons. In his young MLS career, he’s already seen plenty of highs and lows.

As he continues to develop new dimensions to his game – including his recent scoring prowess – and to earn new opportunities with the U.S. Men’s National Team, it’s worth reminding that Kitchen is still merely 23 years old. The real question is how far he will go.

WASHINGTON – Neither side could emerge victorious on Saturday evening as two bitter rivals battled for the second time in less than a month when D.C. United welcomed the New York Red Bulls to RFK Stadium.

D.C. looked to avenge a late-March loss to New York – their only defeat of the season – while New York took the pitch looking to leapfrog United and wrap their hands around the Atlantic Cup title with months to spare.

This time D.C. United hasn’t had to wait long. The chance for revenge against the New York Red Bulls has come quickly, and the appetite couldn’t be greater.

The Black-and-Red dropped their first encounter with their Atlantic Cup rivals on March 22 at Red Bull Arena. But they haven’t lost to the Red Bulls at RFK Stadium since 2013, a streak of three straight victories.

Black-and-Red Basics OCSC vs DCU

The 2015 Major League Soccer season is barely a month old, but matches are already taking on added significance. D.C. United’s (2-1-0, 6 points) first visit to expansion side Orlando City (1-1-2, 5 points) will be an important Eastern Conference test for both teams. The Lions are anxious to prove they can be an elite team in their inaugural season, and the Black-and-Red want to make the most of four conference games in their first five matches.

Here are three other things to watch for when the teams take the Citrus Bowl pitch (UniMás, 7):

When D.C. United takes the field against Orlando City at the Citrus Bowl on national television Friday night (UniMás, 7), it won’t actually be the first time that the Black-and-Red have ever faced Brazilian attacker Kaká.

Kofi Opare didn’t have time to think about playing against his old team and his old teammates, or to ponder what it might be like to see his first regular season minutes in a Black-and-Red uniform.

When Steven Birnbaum went down with a left ankle injury in the second minute of D.C. United’s 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy, it meant that Opare barely had time to get his heart rate up before taking the field.
