Tonight’s match represents the 70th all-time meeting between the Revolution and D.C. United.
D.C. holds a six-win advantage in the all-time series, though Gillette Stadium has served as a safe haven for the Revolution in recent years, as Ben Olsen’s side has won just once in its past 11 visits to Foxboro. United has mounted a 1-6-4 record over that span.
If D.C. wants to overcome its struggles in Foxboro, it will need to do so without defender Steve Birnbaum (concussion) and midfielder Patrick Nyarko (hamstring). That may level the playing field, as the Revolution—who represent the healthier side—will likely shuffle its lineup for the second consecutive match after playing a midweek bout against the San Jose Earthquakes.
Both clubs, then, may lean on reserve pieces to get their respective attacks back on track, as neither side score a goal last weekend (the Revs have gone 180 minutes without a goal after getting shutout by the Earthquakes on Wednesday).
