D.C. United at New England Revolution

D.C. United at

New England Revolution

Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.

When: 7:30 p.m.

Records: United 3-19-6, 15 points; Revolution 10-11-7, 37.

D.C. probable starters: GK Bill Hamid; Ds Chris Korb, Ethan White, Dejan Jakovic, James Riley; MFs Nick DeLeon, Perry Kitchen, John Thorrington, Luis Silva, Chris Pontius; F Dwayne De Rosario.

N.E. probable starters: GK Bobby Shuttleworth; Ds Andrew Farrell, Stephen McCarthy, Jose Goncalves, Chris Tierney; MFs Saer Sene, Kelyn Rowe, Scott Caldwell, Lee Nguyen, Diego Fagundez; F Dimitry Imbongo.

Outlook: United seeks to parlay last week’s encouraging performance — a pair of comebacks during a 2-2 draw with two-time defending champion Los Angeles — into its first road victory of the regular season. United is 0-11-3 with four goals for and 23 against. In the previous visit to Foxborough, D.C. earned a point from a 0-0 draw in June. United defeated the Revolution in the U.S. Open Cup at Maryland SoccerPlex but lost to New England in a regular season meeting at RFK Stadium. D.C. is 1-8-3 since late June while the Revolution, in a tight playoff race with five weeks remaining, yielded seven goals in two consecutive losses. Fagundez, 18, has a team-high 10 goals plus six assists, while Rowe, 21, has seven and seven. They have combined for 10 of New England’s past 15 goals. United is without D Daniel Woolard (strained hamstring), MF Jared Jeffrey (sprained ankle) and D-MF Taylor Kemp (neck spasms). A loss would equal the most defeats in D.C. history (20 in 2010). United is last in the league in scoring with 18 goals — the same as MLS leader Marco Di Vaio of Montreal — and 0-17-2 when conceding the first goal.
