New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls | MLS Match Preview

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION vs. NEW YORK RED BULLS
GILLETTE STADIUM, Foxborough, Mass.
September 16, 2015 (WEEK 29, MLS Game #285)
7:30 p.m. ET (MLS LIVE, CSN-NE, MSG)

A mouthwatering clash for the top spot in the Eastern Conference highlights the midweek matches when the New England Revolution play host to the New York Red Bulls at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday evening. The teams are separated by just two points, with the Red Bulls holding a share of first place in the conference, which the Revs can claim with a victory. It’s also a meeting of two of the hottest teams in MLS: The Revolution extended their winning streak to five games with a win Sunday at Toronto FC, while the Red Bulls won a ninth in the last 12 in a comeback win Friday vs. Chicago.
