|DID YOU KNOW?|
- New England will be withoug Kelyn Rowe, who is suspended due to disciplinary committee action.
- The Revolution’s newest signing, Designated Player Jerry Bengtson, celebrated his MLS debut with a goal in New England’s 2-0 win Sunday against the New York Red Bulls.
- These teams are meeting for the second time in three weeks. A last-gasp goal from the Revolution’s Diego Fagundez left the teams in a 2-2 draw at BMO Field on June 23.
- With eight goals halfway through New England’s 2012 season, Revs striker Saer Sene has already matched the club’s single-season scoring highs from the last four years.
- Toronto is, as it has been for the entire season, dead last in Major League Soccer. The Reds have just one win from their last four matches, and the poorest defense and goal differential in the league.
