New England Revolution vs Columbus Crew betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds


New England are unbeaten in four meetings with Columbus, despite the fact the Crew enjoyed four successive victories over them before this. Overall, Columbus have won three of their last six trips to Massachusetts. 

Both teams to score is 4/6.

Adam Buksa is 9/2 to open the scoring and 13/8 to add to his five goals so far this season. 

Match preview

Can last season's Supporters' Shield winners, belatedly, start to find some form?

Last weekend, the Revs beat Inter Miami 2-0 in Foxborough with Damian Rivera and then Adam Buksa getting the goals.

Rivera's goal, set up by Carles Gil, coming with just 52 seconds on the clock.

Thus, the 19 year old is the first player to score in the first minute of their full-MLS debut since Matias Mantilla did so for RSL 15 years ago.

Overall, Bruce Arena's team have now won three of their first nine games this season, all three of which have come in Massachusetts.

But, having also lost five times already, the Revs are down in ninth, one point below the play-off line.

Columbus Crew have also lifted silverware in recent times, claiming MLS Cup in 2020 before adding last year's Campeones Cup.

Right now, the Back and Gold are just two points above New England after they too have made an indifferent start to the campaign.

Although, last weekend, Caleb Porter's side put in their best showing of the season so far, hammering D.C. United 3-0 at Lower.com Field.

Pedro Santos lashing home a free-kick, before Derrick Etienne Jr. made it two and Darlington Nagbe rounded it all off with a spectacular volley.

This was the Crew's first victory in six, losing thrice since their previous victory against Toronto on 12 March.

Now, as two of MLS founder clubs go head-to-head, will there be a winner at Gillette Stadium?
