Inter Miami wins, says D.C. United player used racial slur
The Miami-Washington D.C. United rivalry is a hot one. It’s fierce when United goes head-to-head against Miami, a rivalry with a shared past.
The United-D.C. United rivalry dates back since 1985, and the two teams are currently competing for supremacy. United is currently in second place, behind the Philadelphia Union, but the two teams have met in several MLS Cup competitions since 1996.
