The New England Revolution and San Jose Earthquakes meet Wednesday in MLS action at Gillette Stadium.
The New England Revolution look for another solid showing after earning points in three of their last four games. The New England Revolution are averaging 1.5 goals per match while allowing 1.5 goals per match. Lee Nguyen leads the Revolution with three goals, Diego Fagundez has two assists and Kei Kamara has 14 shot attempts. Defensively, Cody Cropper has come away with seven saves on 16 shots faced. The New England Revolution are coming off a 3-0 loss to the Chicago Fire, but is outscoring teams on an average of 3.5 to one on their home field. The New England Revolution have earned points in three of the four matches they’ve scored in this season.
The San Jose Earthquakes look to keep chipping away in the standings after settling for back-to-back draws. The San Jose Earthquakes are averaging 1.3 goals per match while allowing 1.3 goals per match. Chris Wondolowski leads the Earthquakes with two goals, Jahmir Hyka has two assists and Marco Urena has 14 shot attempts. Defensively, David Bingham has come away with eight saves on 15 shots faced. The San Jose Earthquakes have scored at least one goal in every match this season and is looking to earn points in their first road match after dropping their first two contests. The Earthquakes are getting outscored two to one on the road this season.
The New England Revolution have gotten the better of the Earthquakes in recent meetings and are 3-1-1 in the last five meetings overall. San Jose’s only recent win over New England was in March of 2012. The meeting last August resulted in a 0-0 draw. Three of the last four meetings have produced at least two goals.
Given the history between these two teams and the struggles the Earthquakes have had on the road, you have to like New England at home. The Revolution have been sharp on their home field and are in better form overall. I’ll take New England and the cheap price.
