DCU Update

DCU needs a three-goal victory over Houston tomorrow and an Atlante loss to Chivas to advance to the semifinals of the SuperLiga. The club also knows it has a league match Tuesday against the Dynamo. So should the club go all out, play its regulars (at least the ones that are healthy) and expend its energy in pursuit of what is clearly a longshot opportunity? There is also the issue of regaining its rhythm and confidence after two disappointing results to Mexican clubs.

Jaime Moreno said today that he will not start and might not play at all.

Said Luciano Emilio: "I am tired, everybody is tired. We worry about this, but we are professionals and we work hard to go through."

Emilio said he thinks he will start.

Santino Quaranta (hamstring) did not practice and probably won't be available. Domenic Mediate (concussion) remains out. Marcelo Gallardo and Gonzalo Peralta are in Germany for hernia surgery. Newly acquired Joe Vide is not eligible until Tuesday.

I will have much more on DCU's approach in tomorrow's print edition (available late tonight at washingtonpost.com).

How do you think Tom Soehn should handle it?

On a side note, as of this morning, 11,000 tickets have been distributed for tomorrow's match, 13,000 for Tuesday.
