It's Friday night futbol as the New England Revolution take on Sporting KC. This will be the third and final regular season meeting between the two clubs and it will be different from previous encounters as it will take place at Sporting Park with NBCSN providing the live broadcast.
The Revs have done well against reigning champs this year as they have won both games. The trip to Sporting Park is daunting, however, as the the Revolution has gone 0-2-2 since the stadium opened in 2011. In fact, only one player has ever scored a regular season goal at Blue Hell and that was Rajko Lekic on July 30, 2011.
Both teams will be missing key components along the backline as Aurelien Collin has been omitted for Sporting KC and A.J. Soares didn't travel for the Revs. It should also be noted that Sporting played a midweek game.
