Almost two months ago the New England Revolution were in the middle of a long unbeaten streak, and played in a listless 0-0 draw at Gillette Stadium against the Columbus Crew.
Now, both the Revs and Crew are struggling, the Revs with one win in their last eight and the Crew winless in their last six. Another less than stellar performance like the one between these two teams earlier in the season will not be much help, as three points is the only cure for what ails both teams.
Kei Kamara has been a revelation for the Crew up front, leading MLS with 10 goals this season while Charlie Davies continues his career revival with seven goals for the Revs. With a talented group of midfielders in support of both strikers there is the recipe for great games like these two played in the playoffs last season. The Revolution are also in the middle of a long, congested part of their schedule having played in the US Open Cup just a week ago while the Crew were off over the weekend.
