The 2016 season is finally upon us as the New England Revolution are down in Texas to play the Houston Dynamo. Soccer Sunday is right around the corner! Both teams will be looking to get things off on the right foot and eventually take the Cup from your 2015 MLS defending champion, Portland Timbers. The Rev’s will be taking on the Dynamo March 6th (3pm et) at BBVA Compass Stadium. New England will be looking for it’s fourth straight win vs Houston and is 6-3-1 all time in Houston. Heaps and company will be feeling confident going in having just come off a cup victory in the Desert Diamond preseason tournament. The Rev’s quality in Arizona included a 2-1 victory against the Dynamo (2/24). The Dynamo managed just one win in five games on the other hand but coach Owen Coyle, now in his second year, will be putting all that aside. The club has brought in Cristian Maidana and Agustin Garcia, who will join the likes of Erick ‘Cubo’ Torres and G. Barnes. Cubo’s 3 goals in preseason will have fans hoping for more at BBVA Compass Stadium this coming Sunday.
