Hello and welcome to the New England Revolution vs. Columbus Crew live game thread! This is the third and final installment in the 2012 series between the two teams, a series which the Crew currently lead with a 1-0-1 record. The Revs carry a slight advantage as they will be the home team, but their last home encounter against Columbus ended in a 0-0 draw, so nothing is guaranteed.
The lineups today are kind of interesting, with moves forced by injuries (A.J. Soares, Saer Sene), exhaustion/knocks (Chris Tierney), and international duty (Jerry Bengtson). Join us after the jump for the lineups and the usual live blog with New England Soccer Today!
