The final game in Group C features managers new and old, as longtime D.C. United leader Ben Olsen and new Montreal boss Thierry Henry will duke it out. That provides plenty of intrigue, as do each club's Knockout Round aspirations.

There's a lot on the line during the MLS is Back Tournament – a Concacaf Champions League spot and a $1.1 million prize pool, to name two – so D.C. and Montreal won't back down at this stage. They might not be the odds-on favorites, but it's all about rounding into form and advancing after a months-long layoff.

As for game-changers who could propel a deep run, Edison Flores and Victor Wanyama are two new midfielders who should be particularly impactful. They're both Designated Players who, respectively, arrived from Morelia and Tottenham.
