DC United vs New England Rev. Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

DC United managed to build on the surprise win over Colorado Rapids by getting a 1-0 victory over Atlanta United at home. An own goal from Michael Parkhurst proved to be the talking point of the game, as it was enough for United to get three valuable points. New England Revolution’s poor away form continues after the club suffered a 2-1 loss against New York City. Teal Bunbury provided the away team with an advantage after 57 minutes. However, David Villa equalised in the 77th minute and the push for a winner helped New York City get three points in injury time through Jonathan Lewis.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The victory over Colorado Rapids might have been a huge slice of luck, but DC United created their own luck in the victory over Atlanta United. Ben Olsen’s team have a strong home record against New England Revolution by winning the last five games at the RFK stadium. New England are yet to manage an away win this season. I see excellent value in backing a victory for DC United.

The last four matches for DC United has witnessed under 2.5 goals, while New England have failed to score in three of the last five visits to the RFK stadium. DC United have the worst scoring record in the division with only 21 this season. Hence, I expect this game to witness less than 2.5 goals.

DC United win – 11/8

Total goals under 2.5 – 6/5

DC United Preview

DC United have been able to achieve back-to-back wins, but it has not helped with the club move away from the bottom of the table. The team continues to remain four points adrift of New England in the 10th place while having played two games more. DC United still have the worst scoring record in the division with only 21 goals scored in 26 league matches. Even then, manager Ben Olsen continues to remain at the club and the recent run of victories have helped ease the pressure. A DC United player has scored only once in the last five league games. Hence, Luciano Acosta remains the top scorer at the club with four league goals.

DC United Team News

Steve Birnbaum (concussion), Chris Rolfe (concussion), Taylor Kemp (hip), Robert Vincent (meniscus), and Patrick Nyarko (eye) are the players unavailable for DC United.

New England Rev. Preview

The away form continues to trouble New England Revolution, as they slipped to a ninth defeat in 12 matches on the road. The club have taken just three points in the away matches. Only Minnesota United and Colorado Rapids have been able to register a worse return of points on their travels. So far, New England have been kept out of the bottom places due to the home form, which has seen them eight wins in 12 games. Kei Kamara, Lee Nguyen, and Juan Agudelo are the top scorers for New England with eight goals.

New England Rev. Team News

Kelyn Rowe (knee) and Joshua Smith (back) are the players on the treatment table for New England Revolution.
