Maintaining their position as League leaders will be New England Revolution’s primary goal going into this game

Whilst a disappointing 1-1 draw against Columbus Crew 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 14 victories in their last 20 fixtures is astonishing this season. They currently sit in first place, top of the League, having accrued 56 points points so far this season having won 17 matches, drawn five meetings, and lost four games.

Revs have won 10 fixtures, drawn two matches, and lost one game of their 13 League matches at home this season.

As League leaders every game is crucial, so a victory would ensure that New England Revolution stay top, whilst maintaining pressure on their rivals.

Orlando City arrive at this game, having secured 38 points so far this season

Óscar Pareja will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Montréal and then Philadelphia Union, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture.

Orlando will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose three fixtures this Major League Soccer season. Their position is fourth in the League, and they have 38 points having won 10 meetings, drawn eight matches, and lost seven matches.

Orlando’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Revs. In the 12 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost five games.

A victory for Orlando City would put them on 41 points.
