New England Revolution vs DC United
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 1 July 2018
Kick-Off at 00:30 UK / 01:30 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Neither New England nor DC were in action last weekend as Saturday’s clash at Gillette Stadium will be their first MLS action in two weeks.

The Revs head into it unbeaten in five league games, but they’ve won just one in the process. United’s visit should really give them the opportunity to return entirely on the winning ways and firm their position inside the top-six on the East.

DC finished the last season at the very foot of the MLS standings and they are looking towards the same destiny this time out, having only collected ten points from the opening 12 games of the season.

Ben Olsen has reasons to be satisfied with his side’s attacking displays, but there is just no meticulousness at the back whatsoever as DC United shipped as many as six goals in last two league ties with Seattle Sounders and Toronto.

New England Revolution vs DC United Head-to-head

DC United lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of the 62nd meeting with the Conference rivals.

Black-and-Red came on top when teams met last time out in late August last year, winning the home match 1-0.

It was the revenge for the US Open Cup elimination they suffered against the Revs earlier on losing 2-1 away at Gillette Stadium.

New England Revolution vs DC United Prediction

DC’s defensive woes will be the music to the ears of teal Bunbury who is enjoying a fantastic season with the Revs. The US forward could take his league tally to double-digits should be score here.

It is highly likable scenario knowing that he was on the scoreline in four of last five appearances for New England. Bunbury is 2.50 to score anytime on the night.

The stand-out pick would be the home win & BTTS knowing that goals at both ends were seen in each of last five games New England played in MLS.

The value is decent at 3.00 odds there. Since both teams have been fairly easy to break down of late, you can also take Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS pick at 1.83.
