AndrewFarrell will surpass ChrisTierney (19,422) for fourth-most minutes played in Revolution history. ... Teal Bunbury needs two goals to tie ShalrieJoseph and PatNoonan for sixth on the club's goal-scoring list at 37. ... Chicago was minutes from a positive result in their season opener, before JordanMorris struck for the stoppage-time winner at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. After having two goals called back for offside, Fire FC took the lead one minute into the second half on RobertBeric's first MLS goal. The Sounders also had a goal called back, but Morris leveled in the 62nd minute and secured his brace in the third minute of stoppage time.
No Turner in net for the Revs.
Big opportunity for Fagundez, the homegrown talent, in the midfield. Need him to play big.
