MLS Preview: New England Revolution - Vancouver Whitecaps

MLS Preview: New England Revolution - Vancouver Whitecaps

Anne-Marie Sorvin

New England will be searching for its first win of the season against a Vancouver side that has not yet tasted defeat.

In the first two matches of the 2014 season, the New England Revolution have given up five goals, scored none and been beaten twice by Eastern Conference rivals. 

Vancouver, on the other hand, opened its season with a 4-1 thrashing of the New York Red Bulls, but followed that up by getting only two shots on target in a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA.

The two teams will square off Saturday looking for some consistency, and in the case of the Revolution, looking to find their first goal and first win of the year. History says Jay Heaps' side should feel confident of its chances in this match.

In two previous home MLS matches against the Whitecaps the Revolution have a 5-1 overall goal advantage and two wins.

Former Whitecap Lee Nguyen took center stage in the last meeting between these two teams at Gillette Stadium, scoring twice and adding an assist as New England took a 4-1 win in May 2012.

The Revs are also traditionally strong in home openers at Gillette, sporting a record of eight wins, three losses and one draw in 11 seasons since the stadium opened its doors.
