Revolution vs. Chivas 2013: Preview and Game Notes

Jared Wickerham

The Revolution face Chivas USA tonight at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

The New England Revolution will look to bounce back after a three-match winless streak in Los Angeles tonight when they take on Chivas USA. The Goats haven't even drawn a match since the end of April; that's a run of seven straight losses in the meantime.

Although Chivas hasn't exactly had an illustrious history in MLS, the Revs' all-time record against the side is just 5-7-3. That includes a 1-5-1 mark on the West Coast, where New England will be playing tonight.
