DC United vs New England Revolution:
MLS Regular Season,
Date: Sunday, June 26, 2016
Kick-off: 0:00 UK Time
Venue: Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium (Washington).
DC United will welcome New England revolution at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium on Sunday as they hope to get back to winning ways in the MLS.
DC United have been lacking consistency since the start of the season having won only four of their fifteen league games. They are without a win in their last three games in all competitions, which include their disappointing loss to North American Soccer League side Fort Lauderdale in the US Open Cup last week. They hope to win this game and maintain their dominance over the New England Revolution.
Meanwhile New England Revolution seem to have found their feet after their poor start to the season, they have woken in recent games as they enter this game from a three game winning streak which includes a 2-1 away victory at Vancouver Whitecaps last weekend, they in the 6th position in the Eastern Conference with 19 points.
- DC United are not good of late, they have lost their last two games and have not scored in the two games.
- DC United have one of the worst striking force in the league this season, they have scored just 14 goals in 15 league games.
- The New England Revolution has been good of late but their defensive form is a thing of worry.
- The New England have conceded 26 goals from 15 league games and also they have been poor on away game this season.
- The New England have been without a win in 6 of their last 7 away games .

DC United vs New England Revolution: Head to Head
DC United have dominated their recent games against the New England, they are unbeaten in their last 5 games as they have won 3 and drawn 2.
United are also good at home against the New England Revolution, they have won their last 4 home ties, they have also score at least 2 goals in the games.
This will be the third time these two teams are playing against each other this season, and the New England are win-less in the 3 games.
DC United vs New England Revolution: Prediction
DC United may be in a fluctuating form but their dominance over the New England can still play a good role in this game, they are unbeaten in their two meetings this season and have kept a clean sheet in both of the games, the New England have a bad defensive record so far this season, showing they have a bad defense which may a bonus to United.
I predict a win for United considering their home dominance against their opponent and also I expect a clean sheet for them, though its risky.
1. DC United to win at FT
2. DC United – Clean sheet
3. Over 1.5 goals
