RECENT FORM VS. D.C. UNITED
This will be the 84th all-time meeting between the New England Revolution and D.C. United in all competitions, dating all the way back to the league's inaugural year in 1996.
Last season, home-field advantage played a significant role as both meetings finished with the hosts taking three points. This includes their battle at Gillette Stadium last June when the Revs took down D.C., 3-2.
The Revs are looking to continue building momentum under interim head coach Mike Lapper after taking four points in their past two games. As they look to continue this trend leading up to new sporting director Bruce Arena taking over the head coaching reins soon, it will be a game that you won't want to miss.
