New England Revolution vs Seattle Sounders
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 00:30 UK
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).

In the 20th round of Major League Soccer, New England Revolution are going to take on Seattle Sounders.

The hosts are enjoying a good streak as they haven’t suffered a defeat in the last six matches. This good run launched them among the top six teams in the Eastern Conference and they are in a good position to snatch a playoff spot.

Teal Bunbury and the lads have been fairly productive this season while their defending haven’t been too bad. New England Revolution are putting good performances when playing at home pitch as they managed to celebrate six victories in ten matches played in front of their fans.

Seattle Sounders cannot be proud of their campaign as they are currently sitting on the 10th place in the Western conference. They are very far from getting involved in the battles for the playoff spot and their recent performances are everything but encouraging.

Brian Schmetzer’s side has some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net more frequently as they are the most inefficient side in the league. Luckily for them, their defence hasn’t been as bad as their attacking work.

New England Revolution vs Seattle Sounders: Head-to-head

These two sides have been equally successful in their head to head clashes and in the last ten encounters they booked three wins each. Their last five clashes were very productive and the crowd has been able to enjoy a lot of goals.

New England Revolution vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction

Home side is in a much better form and they should be able to keep up the momentum. The potential victory in this clash would get them closer to securing the playoff spot as New England Revolution are already six points ahead of Montreal Impact.

Both teams have been involved in high scoring matches lately in which the nets didn’t remain still. The hosts tied seven matches and Seattle Sounders were involved in one game less where both sides managed to find the back of the net. They should be able to extent this efficient streak.
