D.C. United versus New England Revolution TV/streaming, lineup, previews, prediction and gamethread

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

In a battle of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, D.C. United travels north to take on the New England Revolution.

Who would have thought, at the beginning of the season, that this matchup would be between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference? Well, it is in fact such a matchup, and a win by D.C. United over the New England Revolution would vault them into first place.

Time: 7:30 PM EDT

Venue: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA

TV/Streaming: Turn your dials to Comcast SportsNet to hear Dave Johnson and Santino Quaranta call the game. Outside of the CSN-MA viewership area, MLS Live or MLS Direct Kick are your best bets.

Projected D.C. United starting XI: I will go with the regular starters, with one change. That means Bill Hamid in goal, with Sean Franklin, Bobby Boswell, Jeff Parke, and Chris Korb in front of him. The midfield will be Nick DeLeon, Perry Kitchen, Davy Arnaud, and Chris Rolfe, with the forward pairing of Eddie Johnson and Fabian Espindola. I wouldn't mind seeing some rotation, especially on the turf, but Ben Olsen has shown no inclination to do so yet.

Previews: We break down the Revs on the most recent episode of Filibuster, we have our Scouting Report, we have our patented Behind Enemy Lines series, we have lineups, and we have staff and reader predictions. D.C. United also has their video preview.

Prediction: I will stick with the pessimism given how hot the Revs are. 2-1 loss for the good guys.

What are you drinking? It is a beautiful day, some exploring of the city is in order. Perhaps a stop at Richmond's brand-new Triple Crossing Brewery?

As always, this is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game talk.
