After a somewhat disappointing clash with an improved Chivas U.S.A. team, the Caps look to finish their road trip with some points. Although New England haven’t had a great start to their 2014 campaign, their squad is filled with talent such as Fagundez, Rowe, Goncalves and former Cap Nguyen. The Revs are actually a "land of misfitcaps" boasting former Vancouver players such as Brad Knighton, Daigo Kobayashi and the already mentioned Lee Nguyen.
It should also be noted that New England holds arguably the leagues worst pitch, and it is not uncommon for teams to rest key players in fear of injury. That is precisely what I believe Carl Robinson will do. Here is my Predicted Starting Line-up.
Ousted, Harvey, Demerit, Dean, Beitashour, Laba, Koffie, Fernandez, Mezquida, Teibert, Mattocks
2-1 for the Revs
Mattocks (4), Fagundez (84), Imbongo (86)
Darren Mattocks bags his first of the year after he runs on to a long ball from O’Brien, and what should have been an easy header for Goncalves, and finishes well into the bottom right corner. However, a defensive lapse at the death proves costly for Vancouver. First Diego Fagundez dribbles past Demerit and curls one bottom corner to tie things up. Next Dimittry Imbongo connects with a corner to powerfully head home the winner.
Good Luck Caps, prove me wrong!
