New England Revolution vs DC United
Both teams to score- 4/6!
After last weekend’s emphatic victory on the road, back in Foxborough, will New England Revolution start to build some serious momentum?
A week ago, Matt Polster, Wilfrid Kaptoum and Henry Kessler were all on target as the Revs dismantled Orlando City 3-0 at Exploria Stadium.
This is the first time New England have ever beaten Orlando during the regular season, coming at the eighth attempt.
Before this, Bruce Arena’s team had began to falter, failing to win any of their previous six games.
So, last season’s Supporters’ Shield winners are tenth in the east, but it’s tight, with only goal difference keeping them outside the play-off places.
D.C. United meantime are cut adrift at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, four points below second-last Toronto FC.
The Black-and-Red played out a stalemate, scoreless draw with New York Red Bulls last weekend, continuing their mixed start to life under Wayne Rooney.
The new boss had an immediate impact, overseeing a last-gasp win over Orlando, following swiftly by a 3-0 drubbing in Charlotte.
The four-times MLS Cup winners are running out of time if they’re to sneak into the play-offs.
So, this game should be the perfect opportunity for New England to claim three points.
