D.C. United (first in the MLS Eastern Conference) will be going head to head against New England Revolution (second in the Eastern Conference).
The teams have played quite a few matches against each other in the past, with New England Revolution winning the majority of them. But with only 2 points between the two teams in the MLS Eastern Conference, it will definitely be a tough and interesting match to watch.
Leading goal scorers - for the season so far - from each team include Juan Agudelo and Charlie Davies from New England Revolution who have each scored 4 goals, with Chris Rolfe from DC United scoring the most in their team with 3 goals this season. They will all be worth watching out for throughout the match.
New England Revolution prolonged their undefeated streak - at their home ground – to 14 games in league play. This is a club record, and the team haven't lost at Gillette Stadium in 16 games in all competitions, dating back to July 30th 2014.
DC United unfortunately saw the end of their 8-game unbeaten streak in a dramatic style when Philadelphia Union scored the only goal of the game within the stoppage time of the match for a victory last Sunday at PPL Park.
On Wednesday, New England Revolution did have the chance to steal first place in the MLS Eastern Conference if they won their match against Sporting Kansas City, but unfortunately lost 4-2. And so the battle commences, and we wish both teams the best of luck!
The match kicks off on Saturday May 23rd at 7:30 ET.
