The suddenly hot New England Revolution are going for their 3rd straight win tonight (June 25th) in D.C. where they’ll be taking on United (7pm). This will be the 3rd meeting between the two sides. United has already taken four points from the Revolution so far and that includes a solid 3-0 win at RFK Field back on April 23rd. The Rev’s are currently two points ahead of United for 6th place and seven points out of 1st.
Having just come of their 1st road victory, a 1-2 win versus the Whitecaps, New England will be feeling confident that they can get yet another road win in DC. United are just 3-4-1 at home so far in 2016, one of just two clubs with a home losing record in MLS. Adding to D.C’s home woes is the fact they’ll be without two of their better players in Bobby Boswell, who’s suspended and Steve Birnbaum, who’s with the USMNT. Yet another reason United fans may not be too happy going into this match is the clubs horrible attacking record. United are tied for 2nd worst in scoring with just 14 goals scored at the moment. That all being said, can Kamara finally score for NE? Can the Rev’s finally manage a win vs DC and get revenge for the playoff ousting from 2015? We shall soon have our answer.
ALL-TIME (68 meetings): United 31 wins – Revolution 26 wins
