New York City FC couldn’t break down D.C. United’s defensive block at Audi Field on Sunday evening, leaving both teams to settle for a 0-0 draw.

D.C. finished as the second team with zero shots (of any kind) during an MLS regular-season game. The New England Revolution also were held shotless during a Sept. 13, 2017 visit to Atlanta United, where they lost 7-0 as fueled by two first-half red cards.

Chris Seitz finished with four saves, and NYCFC couldn’t find a breakthrough while outshooting the hosts 19-0. 

Left back Ronald Matarrita engineered two clear-cut chances in the first half, though Keaton Parks missed a back-post look in the 25th minute and Jesus Medina’s near-post effort went wide in the 26th minute.

NYCFC argued for a penalty kick in the 44th minute after Heber’s low cross hit Frederic Brillant’s hand, though Video Review didn’t overrule the on-field decision. NYCFC also had an apparent goal in the 88th minute through second-half substitute Gary Mackay-Steven, but Valentin Castellanos was whistled for a handball in the buildup.
