Gillette Stadium sees Thursday action as Revs take on D.C. – 2:00am GMT.

D.C. currently sit in sixth place as they travel to first placed Revs.

New England Revolution go into this match, keen to defend their lead in the Major League Soccer

Bruce Arena will hope that success brings further success, as his side look for another win in a row. Their last two outings resulted in victories against Toronto FC and Philadelphia Union.

League leaders Revs keep finding ways to win, having secured 11 victories in their last 15 games is astonishing this season. They are the team to beat, with 43 points and sitting at the top of the table having won 13 meetings, drawn four matches, and lost three fixtures.

If odds are anything to go by, D.C. cannot expect to get a good result of their trip to Revs. This is particularly true, given both team’s form. Revs have won seven meetings, drawn one game, and lost one game at home this season.

As League leaders, New England Revolution know that every opponent raises their game when they play you, which is why they must concern themselves only with taking all the points on offer with every game.

D.C. United have 27 points to their name, going into this tie

Following two straight wins for D.C. in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

With 27 points, they currently sit sixth in the League having won eight meetings, drawn three games, and lost seven matches.

It must be a worrying prospect for D.C. to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two victories and three draws to the home team.

Victory for D.C. United would take their points tally to 30 so far this season.
