When D.C. United and the Portland Timbers square off Wednesday night at RFK Stadium (8 pm ET, watch LIVE online), the home side face a very grim reality: Win or go home.

The Black-and-Red will be eliminated from playoff contention with a tie or a loss to Portland. The Timbers don't need the result, but a tie or loss will mean that they need plenty of help entering their final game of the season against Real Salt Lake to make it to the dance.

With both teams on the ropes, how does the match play out?
