New England Rev. vs Philadelphia Union Match Prediction

By Sam Turbitt

A highly entertaining goal-fest witnessed New England Revolution getting a 4-3 win over LA Galaxy. The game witnessed Galaxy coming back twice in the game through Daniel Steres, who cancelled out goals from Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara. However, the Revolution seemed to take a sizeable lead with Teal Bunbury’s three-minute brace. Ariel Lassiter’s late goal provided nervous minutes for the Revolution, who hung on for a win. Philadelphia Union suffered a 1-0 loss against Columbus Crew. Justin Meram scored with the help of a heavy deflection in the 65th minute to send the Philadelphia to another defeat. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Revolution are a great pick for this game largely because of their home form. While the club has suffered two defeats in the last five home games, they have been against stronger teams like Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls. They welcome a Philadelphia Union outfit that has suffered four defeats in the last five away games. The Union’s biggest problem has been dealing with the away games. I would back New England Revolution to capitalise on the opposition’s poor away form and get a victory. Philadelphia Union have seen New England Revolution concede nine goals in the last five home games and three goals in each of the last three MLS games. New England have failed to score only once at home this season, but their poor defensive record gives Philadelphia opportunities to score. I would opt for both teams to score.

New England Revolution win – 4/7

Both teams to score – 4/6

New England Rev. Preview

Manager Jay Heaps will be delighted to see his Revolution team come out on the right side of a rollercoaster match, as it helps the club recover from a three-game losing streak in all competitions. The league form was looking especially bad, as the Revolution had lost four consecutive matches. It was not a surprise to see the team get a positive result at the Gillette stadium, as they have been reasonably strong at home with six wins in 10. On the other hand, the Revolution still await the first league win on the road this season. Lee Nguyen has become the club’s top scorer with eight league goals.

New England Rev. Team News

The Revolution will be without Daigo Kobayashi (muscle) due to injury.

Philadelphia Union Preview

Philadelphia Union are one of the teams in need of a win to recover from a three-game winless streak. The team has also suffered back-to-back defeats in the league. The blame for much of this poor run and will go towards the away form, as they have suffered six defeats in the 10 away games. They have also managed just a single win – against fellow strugglers DC United – on the road this season. The last six matches have seen Philadelphia Union rank as amongst the lowest scorers in the division. The club will be without top scorer Charles Sapong, who has nine league goals, due to injury.

Philadelphia Union Team News

Maurice Edu (broken tibia and fibula), Derrick Jones (concussion), Charles Sapong (ankle), and Fabrice Picault (muscle) are the players unavailable for Philadelphia Union.
