Today, we continue with #15:

The success that Dynamo forward Will Bruin has had against D.C. United is well documented. The young striker has six goals in five regular season games and added a seventh during last year's playoff run. But did you know that Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis is just as profilic against the Black-and-Red, tallying 15 goals and assists in 25 career regular season matches against United?

Davis has had more success against D.C. United than any other team in his career. He has scored six goals and added nine assists, including the first goal at BBVA Compass Stadium on May 12, 2012.

Davis' success is not limited to the regular season. The five-time MLS all-star recorded assists in each of the Dynamo's postseason matches against D.C. United in 2012.

Can Davis continue his hot streak against United this year? Come to the stadium on March 2 and see for yourself!
