If winning breeds confidence, as Brad Friedel mentioned Tuesday, what does familiarity breed? For Revolution fans, hopefully a better result -- at the very least, a better performance -- the second time around.
It’s been four weeks since the last time we saw the Crew, and the Revolution will get to tangle with them once again this Saturday night (7:30 p.m.). After four weeks, we’re not expecting Caleb Porter’s side to do anything different than they did on March 9, when they came to Gillette and grabbed a 2-0 victory.
The Crew (2nd in East, 3-1-1, 10 points) are coming off a rather soggy 2-0 win over defending champion Atlanta United FC last Saturday, where passing accuracy found itself bogged down by standing water on the MAPFRE Stadium pitch. Both Pedro Santos — who got the first Crew goal started against the Revs — and Gyasi Zardes scored first-half tallies for the Yellow and Black.
