7:30 pm ET (FSN-NE)
The New England Revolution return home having gone winless in three of their last four games, all on the road - their most unproductive stretch of the season. But they are unbeaten on the campaign at Gillette Stadium, their last home match a miracle comeback win against FC Dallas. They play host to a Los Angeles Galaxy that hasn't won away from The Home Depot Center in more than a year, and lost at home for the first time in even longer in their last match, a 1-0 loss to D.C. United, a fifth defeat in eight games.

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION
The New England Revolution lost for the second time in three matches, both on the road, in a 1-0 loss to Chivas USA at The Home Depot Center last Saturday. Though the Revolution have come away with just one point from their last three away matches, they are still in second place in the Eastern Conference with 35 points from 18 matches, one behind the Chicago Fire but with three matches in hand.
LOS ANGELES GALAXY
The Los Angeles Galaxy lost at home for the first time this season - and Steve Sampson saw his side lose at The Home Depot Center for the first time as head coach - a dramatic Freddy Adu goal giving D.C. United a 1-0 victory on Saturday afternoon. The Galaxy are still in third place in the Western Conference with 28 points from 19 matches, six behind joint leaders FC Dallas and San Jose Earthquakes.
