The New England Revolution need a win after losing three of their last four matches. The New England Revolution have scored 24 goals in 18 matches and have scored two or more goals in nine of those games. Charlie Davies leads New England with seven goals, Kelyn Rowe has four assists and Lee Nguyen has 38 shot attempts. Defensively, the New England Revolution have allowed 24 goals and two or more goals in eight of their matches. Bobby Shuttleworth has produced 41 saves and allowed four goals in his last two starts. The New England Revolution have won one of their last five home matches, which includes three draws.
The Revoluton have wontwo of the last four meetings against the Whitecaps, and the last meeting last year resulted in a 0-0 draw. The visiting team has never won in the all time series.
While the Whitecaps are on fire right now and are probably the better team, the Revolution need this win in the worst way after getting in a little funk. I think New England finds a way at home.
