Prediction

It’s hard to pick a winner in regulation, but I’m thinking Columbus will take this win 2-1 after penalty kicks.
7:54 AM2 months ago

Final preview

Now that I’ve given you a preview of the Eastern Conference Final, it’s time for the hard part. Both teams certainly have a strong squad and are coached by two of the best managers in the league. Columbus is bed-ridden with positive COVID-19 tests, something that the Revs can use to their advantage. However, Columbus have battled through it in their last match, and with a good portion of the squad coming back to the roster this Sunday, that gives the home team a slight edge; Not mentioning that they are playing in front of the maximum fans allowed at the stadium in 1,500.
7:49 AM2 months ago

Crew SC line-up notes

It’s the same lineup against Nashville, but who knows. If it stays the same, Columbus have a strong lineup.
7:44 AM2 months ago

Columbus Crew SC projected line-up

Now let’s take a look at the shuffled up Crew SC. 


Columbus is managed by Caleb Porter. They are projected to lineup in a 4-2-3-1 formation. 


Tarbell; Afful--Williams--Mensah--Valenzuela; Artur--Nagbe; Santos--Zelarayan--Diaz; Zardes.

7:39 AM2 months ago

Revolution line-up notes

Look for the Revs to lineup the same as they did against Orlando City. Although they have a reported two players out due to having positive COVID-19 tests, it really doesn’t affect the starting lineup much.
7:34 AM2 months ago

Projected lineup for New England

New England is managed by Bruce Arena and will most likely line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. 


Turner; Jones--Kessler--Farrell--Buchanan; Caldwell--Polster; Bunbury--Bou--Gil; Buksa.

7:29 AM2 months ago

How will these teams lineup?

Looking at both of these teams, this could be a game that could be very good no matter who comes out on top. But, we’ll get to my prediction at the end. Right now, let’s take a look at who could start for both teams. Because Columbus is a mystery, we’ll start with the visiting Revolution.
7:24 AM2 months ago

Last time both teams made MLS Cup Final

Looking back, Columbus Crew hosted the MLS Cup Final against the Portland Timbers who was coached by…. You guessed it. Caleb Porter. On the other hand, Bruce Arena was the head coach at the Los Angeles Galaxy when they hosted MLS Cup Final in 2014 and played, none other than the New England Revolution.
7:19 AM2 months ago

Bruce Arena = Legend

Fun fact: Bruce Arena has eliminated 15 teams in the postseason? Could Columbus be the 16th, and could the Revolution be in their second MLS Cup Final in the last six years? Or will Columbus host the final for the second time in five years?
7:14 AM2 months ago

Neutral site for Cup Final?

There have been reports that the league could move the MLS Cup Final to a neutral site, should the top seed to host not be able to due to COVID-19. All four cities where the Conference Finalists play (Washington state, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Ohio) all have some sort of restrictions in place. First reported by Jeff Carlisle of ESPN, he mentions that Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida has been mentioned.
7:09 AM2 months ago

Trouble in Crewville?

Columbus is certainly behind the eight-ball, but if they can perform well against Nashville, there is no reason to worry or hit the panic button against the New England Revolution.
7:04 AM2 months ago

COVID-19 problems within the Columbus squad

Columbus has been a victim of the coronavirus pandemic, with eight players testing positive this week. Looking at who all was deemed medically not cleared, the list isn’t as bad as Crew fans thought. The team has had three rounds of negative tests, with the fourth coming yesterday on Saturday.
6:59 AM2 months ago

Now here we are

Now here we are today. Columbus has never made it past the New England Revolution before in the playoffs, with their most recent meeting coming in 2014 when the Crew were outplayed at home, eventually getting knocked out of the playoffs when the playoff format had two-legs instead of the single elimination format which took front seat in 2018.
6:54 AM2 months ago

Crew Sc defeat New York Red Bulls and Nashville SC.

The Black & Gold took on the New York Red Bulls in the first round, winning that match 3-2. That would send them through to take on newcomers Nashville SC. With Nashville coming to town, lots of talk brewed on social media between the two fan-bases. Nashville was able to hold on with Columbus, but it was Pedro Santos and Gyasi Zardes who paved the way for Columbus to make it to the Eastern Conference final, winning 2-0 after extra time.
6:49 AM2 months ago

Now for Columbus Crew SC

Now let’s look at the home side, Columbus Crew SC.
6:44 AM2 months ago

Revs handle Orlando

New England took on Orlando City SC, a clear favorite to be the Eastern Conference representative in MLS Cup Final this year. However, Bruce Arena coached the team perfectly, as the MLS original from Boston, Massachusetts dethroned Manchester United legend Nani and the Lions 3-1, with striker Gustavo Bou netting a brace in that match to send them to the Eastern Conference Final.
6:39 AM2 months ago

New England defeat the Philadelphia Union

The Revs then took on Supporter’s Shield Winners Philadelphia Union at Subaru Park, where Tajon Buchanon helped lead the way to a massive win over the Union to knock out the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference. That lead to yet another tough match, down in Orlando, Florida.
6:34 AM2 months ago

How the Revs got here

The New England Revolution have not had an easy path, but they showed no opponent can stand in their way. The Revs took down the Montreal Impact in the Eastern Conference play-in match at Gillette Stadium, defeating Thierry Henry and company at the death of the regulation time with a goal by Adam Buksa.
