Match Preview

In this round of USA Major League Soccer, Columbus Crew VS New England Revolution at home.Revolution suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat to strugglers FC Dallas in their last outing, beaten by a brace from Ricardo Pepi.They had gone into the game on a five-match winning streak but lost for just the second time in 11 matches in the 2021 campaign; it was their third game in the space of nine days and tiredness was evident in Arena's men.While they have a 100% record on home turf this season, New England have only won two of their six away matches so far and kept just one clean sheet on the road.After travelling to Ohio, their following four matches are all against sides currently in the bottom half of the Eastern Conference.Adam Buksa scored an 86th-minute winning goal in a 1-0 victory for New England Revolution when the two teams met earlier this season in May, which was the first time Revs had beaten the Crew in six matches since 2017.Columbus Crew head coach Caleb Porter on June 20, 2021


That was one of only three defeats that Caleb Porter's side have suffered in 10 games so far this season, and they remain unbeaten at home; winning three and drawing one of their four games at the Historic Crew Stadium.However, Saturday's fixture will be the first game at their new home stadium, the Field, which has been nearly two years in the making.The Crew made their first visit to Austin last time out and drew 0-0 with the MLS newcomers, their third goalless stalemate of the campaign.It is therefore no surprise that while the Ohio outfit have the joint-best defence across both East and West conferences having conceded just seven goals, only Chicago Fire and Austin have scored fewer than their tally of nine.


Columbus Crew possible starting lineup:Room; Afful, Wormgoor, Mensah, Valenzuela; Nagbe, Parente; Santos, Zelarayan, Molino; Zardes


New England Revolution possible starting lineup:Turner; Bye, Kessler, Farrell, Jones; McNamara, Polster; Buchanan, Gil, Traustason; Bou
