It's time for the game! One hopes three is the lucky number for coach Jose Luis Real, as his team Chivas USA is hosting the New England Revolution this evening for their only meeting of the season (7:30 pm PT, MLS Live/hurry! Tickets are still for sale!). Both teams are hoping to get a draw or win this evening, but the big question is which side is better equipped to handle their opponent. With Chivas continuing to slump, it appears the Revs have the upper hand, but hope springs eternal.
I'll be providing the usual play-by-play and commentary in the comment section below. Feel free to jump in the conversation!
