The second place New England Revolution are on the road down I-95 to face the Eastern Conference leading D.C. United in a nationally televised contest this afternoon.
With the Revolution four points back of DC with a game in hand, this is a true six-pointer as we near the midway point of the 2015 MLS season. The last time these two teams met it ended in a 1-1 draw with a 9-man Revs team hanging on for a point following second half red cards to Chris Tierney and Lee Nguyen.
The Revs are coming off a midweek 1-0 US Open Cup loss to the USL's Charlotte Independence while DCU advanced with a 3-1 win over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. In MLS play, DC is on a two-game losing streak with defeats against Toronto and Orland and the Revs ended a 6-game winless streak last week with a 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire.
We'll update the lineups and other information as best we can with all the Father's Day event going on today. Feel free to leave your comments throughout the match in down below.
