Can New England Revolution extend unbeaten run to eight games?
The top team in Major League Soccer will try to extend their unbeaten run to eight games when the New England Revolution host DC United on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium.
What happened between New England and DC?
On Saturday, New England needed a late penalty, outlasting Toronto 2-1, while DC had their five-match unbeaten run snapped on Sunday, losing 5-2 to Nashville SC.
Who scored DC United’s 11th goal of the season on Sunday?
Ola Kamara scored his 11th goal of the season on Sunday, Ramon Abila made his DC United debut, coming on as a substitute, and Frederic Brillant scored his first goal of the year in the loss and his fifth as a member of the Black-and-Red.
How can DCDC stay above the playoff line?
DC may be above the playoff line after 19 games, but if they want to remain in the top seven and possibly make a strong run in the postseason, they need to start earning some points against the stronger sides in this league.
The race for first place in the Eastern Conference has turned into a one-sided affair lately, with the Revs starting to pull away, currently holding a 12-point cushion atop the table.
Revs midfielder Carles Gil missed his third consecutive match last weekend with a muscular injury, while Luis Caicedo remains out with a lower-body injury.
We say: New England Revolution 3-2 DC United
New England have been involved in plenty of tight matches this year, and they usually seem to come out on top, winning 11 of their 13 one-goal games this season, and they have not lost to the Black-and-Red at home since 2012.
