The Revolution will host their I-95 rival
New York Red Bulls
tonight at Gillette Stadium as they look to get back to winning ways and exact revenge for their 1-0 loss at Red Bull Arena earlier this season. The Revs (5-7-4) are coming off an undefeated June which featured a win and three ties, while the Red Bulls (9-4-4) sit comfortably in 3
place in the Eastern Conference standings.
New York looks to be without six of their normal starters-
, Rafa Marquez,
Jan Gunnar Solli
, and Markus Holgersson-who are all sidelined due to injury-related issues. Although the matchup is a tasty one for the Revs with this influx of injuries, they will be wise to remember that last time these two sides met New York was also without several starters, particularly on defense, but still managed to secure a win.
The Revs will also be short-handed without their captain
, but also desperately need a full three points to keep pace with the rest of the Eastern Conference and make a push for a playoff berth.
