New York heads north to take on the Revolution in one of the league's best rivalry matches.The high-flying New England Revolution will host traditional rival New York on Sunday, with the Revs sitting top of the Eastern Conference and the Red Bulls disappointingly all the way back in seventh.
Four matches without a win has the Red Bulls in desperate need of a result against New England to gain a bit of momentum before the World Cup break, but that will be no easy task.
A 2-0 loss to Montreal last week was the first for the Revolution after going seven unbeaten, and aside from that slip, New England has been the hottest team in the league over the last month. The young attacking group for the Revs helped the team rack up 19 goals over the seven-match unbeaten run, and the shutout against the Impact looks more likely to be the exception than the rule.

New York has plenty of fire power in its own right, but the team hasn't been able to translate Bradley Wright-Phillips' 11 goals into a consistent winning formula.
A win over New England could see the Red Bulls move as high fourth in the Eastern Conference, while a positive result for the Revolution would leave the club sitting at the top of the table until league play resumes at the end of June.
