Audi Field sees Thursday action as D.C. take on Revs – 2:30am GMT.

Leaders Revs are currently five·places higher than their rivals D.C., when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and sixth positions respectively.

D.C. United have 41 points to their name, going into this tie

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Ben Olsen’s D.C., having drawn away to Nashville SC, which itself followed a loss to Orlando City. A win would go some way to restoring the team’s confidence.

Their position is sixth in the League, and they have 41 points having won 12 meetings, drawn five fixtures, and lost 12 matches.

When D.C. host Revs, they will do so on the back of 10 wins and one draw on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see D.C. United on 44 points.

New England Revolution will be under pressure to remain top of the League, going into this fixture

Whilst a disappointing 2-2 draw against Chicago Fire in their last game, is not the worst result they could have experienced, Revs will be keen to improve the result in this fixture.

League leaders Revs keep finding ways to win, having secured 12 victories in their last 16 meetings is astonishing this season. With 63 points so far this season, they have secured the top spot in the Major League Soccer having won 19 fixtures, drawn six matches, and lost four games.

Revs’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to D.C. In the 14 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won eight fixtures, drawn three matches, and lost three games.

The League leaders have set the bar high, so only a win will be acceptable for New England Revolution, especially if they are to maintain their position and keep the momentum to win the League.
