The New England Revolution were one of the most improved teams in Major League Soccer last season after Bruce Arena took a team that just snuck into the playoffs to the first place club in the Eastern Conference. The Revs are off to a bit of a slow start this season, but are just three points behind Sunday's opponent, Atlanta United, heading into the weekend. Atlanta holds the seventh spot in the East, and is coming off of their first win in four matches after it beat Chicago 4-1 last Saturday.

He also knows that United is the top passing team in MLS, and has completed 83.7 of their total passes this season. Midfielder Matheus struggled a bit with a hamstring injury early in the month, but remains the top distributor on the team, having completed 394 of his 439 total passes made this season.
The expert also knows New England has had one of the league's lowest save rates from its goalkeepers, at 58.1 percent. Brad Knighton and Earl Edwards Jr. both started four games for the Revs while Matt Turner missed much of the season thus far while with the US National Team, but neither were very effective, and averaged two goals allowed per 90 minutes in their appearances. Furthermore, the Revolution have made the fourth-fewest tackles in their defensive third, and opponents have put their shots on target just over 36 percent of the time.
