For the first time this season, the Columbus Crew has two home matches in a row. This comes after a lengthy portion of the season the team spent split between home and on the road.
After earning a 2-2 draw earlier in the year on the road, the Crew hosts the New England Revolution on Saturday, riding high off of a 2-0 win against Hell is Real Derby rivals FC Cincinnati last Sunday. The Revolution, who currently sit in 10th place in the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference standings, lost the club’s previous matchup against the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on the road.
The matches between these two MLS originals are often a rollercoaster. Neither team typically runs away with a match and the outcomes are usually close; their last three meetings that ended in draws, for insce. However, The Black & Gold could extend their streak to nine games unbeaten overall with a win on Saturday and propel themselves higher in the standings.
