WHO: Columbus Crew SC at Revolution
WHEN: Saturday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.
TV/RADIO: NBC Sports Boston/WBZ-FM 98.5 HD2/WMVX 1570 AM (Portuguese)
WHAT’S UP: It’s MatchDay 11 for New England, and the second time in a month that the Revs take on the Crew. The two similar-styled sides battled to a 2-2 draw at MAPFRE Stadium on April 21, the Revolution coming back twice to salvage an important road point. A Boys In Blue (5-3-2, 17 points, sixth in the East) victory tonight can see them rise as high as fourth/fifth; Columbus (6-3-3, 21 points, second) can only stay second with a win, but could drop as far as fourth with a defeat and other results in the league going against them this weekend.
